Traffic Jam? Just Ducky!

So I’m going home on Veteran’s and there’s a bottleneck up ahead. I can’t really figure out what’s going on, until I come up on a car with its hazards on. Oh, no, stalled car! I go to switch lanes and notice a woman up ahead on the ground and black tire marks. Oh! Someone’s hurt! That’s when I notice more people milling around and running towards me, herding…baby ducks! I could hear their peep, peep, peeping as they ran underneath my car!

Traffic is backing up behind me big time, but I’m not going anywhere not knowing whether or not there are baby ducks under my wheels!  By this time there are like seven people chasing these ducks.  One guy has a box, one big, construction worker, complete with hard hat, has gotten two of them off the road.  They are under my van, they are not under my van.  Finally someone raps on my back window.  “You can go now.  We’ve got them.”  As I took off I felt like I’d just been tapped in a giant game of Duck, Duck, Goose and now I was it!
