I got a whole keg of corn squeezins here for you, but first you gotta BURN that wee-man-broth recipe. That is an abomination,but it does explain why Doc M keeps building fires under cisterns wee folks are having a relax in.
Now, ducks are cute, and I am sorry you are under the weather, but please do accept this keg of likker, and destroy that recipe. It would be taken as a kindness by us gnome folks. If that recipe ever gets out, we'd be in trouble, and let me tell you, were you to GIVE it to anyone - well - we'd just have to pull that recipe for duck l'orange outta the box, ya know?
: : And PLEASE Miss PaddleTALE, get plenty of rest and liquids so you can recover completely, quickly and rejoin us! Anything we can send you? Do ducks do chicken soup? What DO ducks do when sick for liquids?

: *cough, cough...hack,hack,hack, quarkle!*
: My Dear Mr. Gnomeling, Sir,
: I answered this question a few minutes ago, but it seems to have been swallowed up by a duplicate post from someone named Doc M. *SQUAWK! This is where I should scream about the sky falling, and the world coming to an end, but I'm just too pathetic today to even try to be hysterical!*
: So...I shall TRY, feebly, to repeat my previous response. *ahem*
: I hate to tell you this, Gnomie, but...ahh...ummmmm...my Ol' Mohican Granny, Squawksalot, used to swear by a broth made of the well-stewed carcass of a wee, tiny man under the height of say, 3' or so. She insisted it would cure the common cold, in-flooo-inza, rheumatiz, consumption, liver ailments and chilblains, plus it made a dandy soak for tired, aching webfeet.
: Now, myself, *quack, quack*, being a farm-raised duck, prefer my liquids in the form of corn squeezin's, if'n ye get my drift. Pity, though...I'm fresh out! *feeble cough* Ye wouldn't by any chance be able to rustle up some for a pore, sick duckie, wouldja? I'd hate to have to resort to Granny Squawksalot's recipe, ya know. Mebbe you could get back to me on that? *cough, cough*
: In the meantime, I'll just sit on this recipe for Broth O'Shorty. I wouldn't want it to *accidentally* blow out my nestbox window, and end up in the hands of someone less scrooopulous than I. *quackquack...cough, hack...quack!*
: Yours VERY Feebly and THIRSTily,
: Miss Paddletale
