 It was about 1AM Wednesday morning, and I awoke to a strange noise. At first, I couldn't place the noise. Subsequently, I started to get a little freaked out. I lay in bed a bit longer, ears perked trying to figure out what it was.

It sounded....like a duck quacking? At this point, I thought I was losing my mind or possibly still dreaming so I lay there a little bit longer hoping to actually wake up.

Nope, it's definitely a duck quacking.

I got out of bed quietly, and picked up my conveniently located personal trainer textbook from my nightstand. I was ready for anything at this point, so I gingerly unlocked my bedroom door and opened it slowly.

The quacking stops.

WTF? I stood perfectly still for a few moments, listening for any sort of other creepy weirdo noise. I heard nothing so I stepped back to shut my bedroom door.

The quacking starts again.

SERIOUSLY?! Now I'm annoyed, I hate being woken up and especially hate being woken in a freaked out state. I stepped out into the hallway and turned on the light, then walked into the bathroom to flick on the light switch.

Nothing unusual in the bathroom. Except...I listened closely and my foggy brain starts telling me to look at the ducky soap dispenser I purchased back in March when I moved into my new place. I picked up the dispenser and it's quacking at me.

I start poking around trying to get it to turn off. I never knew the silly thing was supposed to do more than look cute! Unfortunately now, it seems that the circuit which I found to be located directly on the bottom had gotten water into it and short circuited. I grabbed my tweezers and angrily yanked half the chip out of the bottom of the dismantled duck.

This is what I get for trying to bring a little cute into my life.  At least it gave me a good laugh after I got some coffee into me this morning and relayed the story to my boyfriend. :)
