It’s a burning question: Is it ‘duct’ or ‘duck’ tape, and does it work on warts?
Reader, it’s both.
For as long as MRP has known BGF Gopher, Gopher has extolled the virtues of duct tape (while never mentioning the whole “duct tape can be used to cure warts” thing). She says she never travels anywhere without it.
Consequently, MRP lugged a roll of “Duck” duct tape all around Indonesia and Sri Lanka for nearly two weeks before faced with the reality that some things in the suitcase would have to be jettisoned to make more room.
Having decided to leave the duct tape behind, I valiantly attempted to close my crammed suitcase. It ripped.
I would say that it’s the duct tape that helped me duck certain disaster and enabled me to get that darned suitcase to the Colombo airport (where they secured it with something even better: large swaths of plastic wrap).
