One Bunny Two Bunny...

That is a statement that strikes fear into the hearts of my entire family. Literally. When I was a very young child my Aunt and Uncle gave me a bunny for Easter. A bunny...no cage, no food, and my parents had no idea about it until it was already in my hot little hands.

So my Mom bided her time. Years went by and my Aunt had her daughter, still Mom waited. When my cousin was about the same age I had been (old enough to raise all kinds of bloody hell if you try to take a pet from them) my Mom presented her with a cage, a bag of food and TWO bunnies, a boy and a girl.......

It is a legend. Christmas Eve, years ago, someone was joking about waiting until the FlyingMonkeys were asleep and then going outside to jingle some bells and shout "Ho Ho Ho." I just smiled serenely and said, "One bunny two bunny."

I'm suddenly afraid to try to recall what presents I've given my nephews over the years that my in-laws plan on "returning the favor" for . . .
