The gist of her message was that I should do a recording of my #fridayflash story Duckish (part1). She'd already mentioned this in the comments, but that wasn't enough. It needed a follow up call.
I've never tried to record anything I've written. I probably wouldn't have done it at all except for the phone call. Cathy was just so sweet and so damn
It took four tries to get this. The first three times were incoherent, even to me. I laughed myself silly. It really seemed unnatural to speak so slowly ("Slow?" you say. "Ha!" - I heard you). You might still need to read along to figure out what I'm saying. Forewarned is forearmed.
So here is my first recording attempt. Enjoy, or at least pretend you did.
