We celebrate National Duckie Day in honor of Sesame Street's, Ernie, who sang, "Rubber Duckie." The tub time hit sat at #16 on the Billboard Hot 100 in September of 1970. The birthday of the duckie was January 13th. Hence, we have this day to reach in for our inner child and allow them the fun that only a rubber duckie can bring.
Our memory is such that we don't remember much of the first 30 years of our life. However, we do remember bits of the aforementioned show clip. Hence, we fully intend to seize the duck. Carpe anatem!
But, then again, if you were to check out that translation, it even carpe diem would work. Carpe anatem also means to pluck the duck and we will not be plucking or otherwise harming any ducks, rubber or not. We will be seizing to play and that is all.
If you, like myself, have found you never quite outgrew your love for rubber duckies, or if you simply feel nostalgic for the free spirited days of your childhood– don’t feel left out!
