To support my side, I have to tell you that I've lived in at least six different states. The only state of those six that says this gray duck nonsense is Minnesota. My husband has good old-fashioned stubbornness on his side and he just figures if he says "Duck Duck Gray Duck" enough I'll give in. For the record? It's not working.
Today a friend posted on her Facebook profile that this subversive 'gray duck' talk is being taught in our schools. I am shocked and horrified. I immediately offered messages of support and encouragement to her. She has had talks with her little girl about the correct way to play this game - I just hope it's not too late for her and that the damage has not already been done.
So today I draw a line in the sand. No more of this 'gray duck' talk. It's only "Duck Duck Goose" from here on out. After all, if Google says it then it must be so...right?
Note the FIRST item that comes up when you search for that gray duck nonsense. I win.
