Hurtful words bounce off
A duck waddles back

This piece is a contribution to Fandango’s One Word Challenge. Today’s word is “impervious”.
“Impervious” made me think of bullying and the power of words to destroy contrasted with the fortitude and resilience of nature. Especially a duck—i.e. water off duck back—that can be emulated in empowering a child (or anyone who’s the target of a bully) with skills of bounce-back-ability.
