He was working as a technical assistant in the microbiological section of a laboratory and he got married. It was a bush setting with an ornamental lake, in the hills. In keeping with the wedding tradition of our family, there was the usual moment of lunacy. The ornamental lake was overfull of water and wild ducks. The boy, ever mindful of the bush, said no confetti so the guests threw coloured rice. Before you could say 'free lunch' the ducks were at the ceremony. The Groom loved it, the Bride was not so impressed and the guests got used to side-stepping the quackers.
