F1 Swag... From A Small French Fishing Village

Back in May, during the Duck U Bookstore's spring buyback, one of my temp employees announced that she and her husband were to be going on a cruise at the beginning of June.  A pleasant hour was spent looking at the cruise line's history (good), the cost per person (they got a deal), whether a balcony room on the ship would be worth it (it was), and their itinerary.  "Oh, the cruise is going to Rome, Florence, Marseilles, Monaco, then we're also going to spend a week in London, too!"

Monaco?

Yesterday, my temp came back into the store carrying little bags for me and my assistant manager.  The contents of mine were surprising to say the least:

She purchased both the keychain and the rubber duck in a shop in Monaco.  Who would have thought that rubber ducks, even racing rubber ducks, would be for sale in Monaco?  I actually have a remarkably similar duck in The Flock already, but there are differences: the older one has a weighted base and is somewhat smaller, for example.  I've got a Monegasque duckie!

The keychain is quite heavy... too heavy for me to use casually, as a matter of fact.  One gets the feeling you could cause harm to someone with it.  The car is painted in the colors of Monaco, of course, never mind the resemblance to Ferrari.  Body shape is similar to the cars of the '90s... which is good, I prefer those to what's on track today.

My collection of F1 swag is growing.

1 Oooh, that's a proper racing duck, that is.
