I shrugged. “I guess when they say I’m better.”

“Look around you, Fred.” The green-headed duck pointed with his wing. “This place is peopled with psychotics. Do you think you’ll get better here?”

“Umm, I suppose not.”

“Then let’s go!” he declared.

The green-headed duck flew over the fence and met me at the other end.
