I couldn't get a definite answer about whether ducks get lonely or not. People were usually too busy laughing at me. Anyway I found out that one of Ping's siblings was available so Jack and I got another box and went and picked up Pop (Jack's choice of name). Of course my mother suggested we should call the new duck Pong and S didn't even get a look in. Actually he just came home and found that instead of one duck we now have two. That's two very happy ducks.
