I think I might need a duck.
You have no idea what I'm talking about, do you?
Well, I've told you about Havi before, right? Well, she has a duck. Selma. Selma helps run the business. A silent partner, if you like.
Selma is, by all accounts, awesome in many ways. One of the ways in which she is awesome is that she sort of serves as Havi's gatekeeper.
People who recgonize Selma as awesome are the type of people Havi wants to attract to her blog and her services. People who think the duck is stupid, childish, creepy, whatever can go elsewhere.
Now, I don't need a literal duck.
But we all have people we get along with better than others, people who can help us and whom we can help.
And Selma, for Havi, is -- as I interpret it, anyway -- a sort of Shibboleth, a way of identifying who those people are.
Now, we all know there aren't that many people even reading this, so the fact that you're even here probably means you pass.
But I'm open to suggestions for my version of a Duck.
Maybe I should write a personal ad about it...
