The List

There is, of course, a List of people who will be the first to die when Chloë achieves world dominion. Right now it's mainly requests from her minions--for example, loyal henchman Su has added several, and Eric has at least one, and I've added a few as well, especially after some long days at work. But Chloe has a few of her own.

Recently added to the List, it appears, is yellow ducks.

She has a rubber ducky for bathtime, and whenever we present it to her she chomps down on it, usually bill-first, we assume for censorship purposes. Her grandmother has a similar toy that gets the same treatment. One of her (okay, my) favorite books is Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? by Eric Carle. It has a yellow duck in it, and today when we were reading it she attempted to chomp on it too...bill-first. I don't know what her grudge is, but it runs deep.
