Wendy and I just got Isaac a baby rabbit for his birthday.We were so excited, we were telling random strangers.
“Hey, we are getting our son a bunny for his birthday.”
“That’s great pal, that magazine will be three bucks.” (Hopefully, I didn’t just make it totally obvious that I don’t actually buy magazines by guessing three bucks as a newsstand price.)
First thing on birthday morning, I crept into the closet where the bunny was hidden with Isaac and Wendy.We were so excited.Oh, this moment was going to be so great.We are the best, the best!
Isaac played coy. “hmmm, a rabbit. where are my other presents?”I could tell that he was really excited, though, as he left the closet without even asking to pet/watch it.
But, Wendy and Belle are even more thrilled, so bonus. Sometimes, my sarcasm confuses me.For those playing along at home.Isaac not excited, Wendy and Belle- genuinely excited, Tyler-neutral observer.
I was staring at the bunny, and thinking about lucky rabbit’s feet.
As a child I loved them, the bright green/red/blue foot made into a keychain that I rubbed for luck.
I didn’t fully appreciate a couple of things at the time.
I was/am the boy/man that refuses to kill anything at all, including insects.Yet, having a detached foot as a toy did not bother me.
Two, can a foot that was detached from its owner really be lucky?According to my calculations, no.
That is all.
