Ok, I have had enough people asking me where I got my nickname, so boys and girls, gather round as I tell you how the Duck came to be.

Fall, 2009
It was just a typical Saturday on the University of New Mexico campus in beautiful downtown Albuquerque (can't believe I just said that). There was an intermission during the Anime Club's showing that week, between Toradora and Viper's Creed I believe, but it did not matter since most of my time was spent playing Smash Bros. Brawl that day.

So as normal, myself and a close group of friends that attend this group every Saturday religiously, hit up the local Sonic where I ALWAYS get the limeade. Sipping on my said limeade, we walk back to the campus, heading back to the normal spot we hang out at. This spot happened to be the center of the campus, also known as the Duck Pond (for reference, see link), and for good reason.

Well, being a Saturday, not very many people are out and about on the campus, so it was relatively quiet and peaceful. It was already 5 pm, and it looked like the sun was setting early on this day. Noting this, we decide to head back to the Student Union building. Walking fairly close to the water, I didnt pay any attention, still sipping on my limeade. Well, close to the edge if fairly rocky and unstable.

A friend of mine must have known I was not paying much attention and saw an opportunity. Before I knew it, I felt one of my legs not go fully forward like it should have. Usually what happens then is most people would fall forward. I, on the otherhand, almost caught my balance, before stepping back a little too far. Just so happened that behind me was a larger rock. Tripping on that, I found myself falling backwards...right into the pond.
 
As I fell in, the ducks nearby was not fazed at all. In fact, As I found myself floating in the pond, the ducks that were nearby were converging upon me, as if I was their king. They began swimming around me, as I looked up and saw the 3 other people laughing their asses off. I pulled myself up out of the water, heading back to my dorm while they returned back to the club.

As I walked back into my room, my roommate looks at me, and the only words that came out of his mouth were, and I quote, "The hell? Did you swim with the ducks?". Being the way I am, all I did was nod at him, and he shook his head, laughed, and went back to editing his movies. I changed clothes and headed back to the club.

As I walked back into the room where the anime was being shown, the first thing I noticed was the all heads were turned in my direction, and some couldnt help but break into laughter. At that, I knew exactly that word had spread around rather quickly in the 10 minutes I was changing. The club president, who is a good friend of mine, cracked a joke, and before I knew it, so were all the other members of the club. The nicknames started flying, but all of them contained the same word: duck and/or ducky.

The name didnt really stick, that is, until I attended an officer meeting for the club, and the last thing they voted on, was to replace my actual name with the name Ducky. Needless to say, it was unanimous vote. From then on out, my name became Ducky instead of Corey.

This story spread quickly amongst people I knew, and even among some of my instructors. And before I knew, I was no longer known as Corey, but as Ducky, and from that day forward, the name stuck and the only people that dont call me by that name is my family.


There you have it boys and girls...the story of how Ducky came to be.
