a distraction - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
The duck moves through the water like it's got some kind of outboard motor. It hasn't though. Underneath the surface its legs are working hard to move it along at that speed. The effort never shows on that ducky face, but then ducks have the emotional range of a wet hanky. Still though, it draws my attention, a welcome distraction after a busy day.
Distractions are simple with Amy and Karl around. I just have them have a non-discrete conversation just in ear shot of the mark. Typically they look away as they listen, head at an unnatural angle while they absorb the salacious details, lips twitching upward. That's when I walk past all casual-like and they don't notice a thing. Super easy.
