After being thrown from a container ship in the North Atlantic fourteen years ago, tens of thousands of floating duck bathtub toys, some circumventing the Atlantic perimeter, are finally predicted to make landfall on a New England beach next week.

America, before returning to the North American coast.

In a related event, Lou "Slugman" Virostik, after 87 community college quarter hours spread out over 14 years, 15 temporary jobs, and an aborted engagement, has announced a decisive career path. Lou reflects:
"I spent a lot of time drifting about and thinking."
The rubber ducks, already a novelty, are expected to be plucked from the sea and sold as souvenirs.
"At least that's my plan." Lou ponders.
"I'll put them on E-bay as soon as I get my AOL account up to date."
