An Easter *Tail* – er, TALE!
Posted April 5, 2012
Bunella: It’s that time of the year again – *sigh*…
Oona Dolly: Yes… I’ve been trying to motivate myself for the task ahead –
Chocobunny: pffft, you got it easy]…
Bunella: It’s not just the work and stress of the egg delivery; I’m still haunted by my brothers’ demises. It’s really taken the joy out of the holiday for me –
Oona Dolly: I know, I know, Bunella! I didn’t mean to disregard your feelings, but I felt unsure about bringing that up –
Chocobunny: notice they don’t ask ME about my issues with this holiday! no one eats THEIR ears first!...
Bunella: Oh, I’m sorry to be a wet blanket! So many people love this time of year and look forward to it; I shouldn’t be selfish and dwell on my family losses, I know –
Oona Dolly: But you can’t pretend it never happened; I understand! Still, we must buck up and do our duty; it’s all about the children, and making the holiday a happy memory for them –
Chocobunny: me, I just wanna HEAR after the holiday…that too much to ask?...
Black Bunny: Guess you didn’t get the memo, didja?
White Rabbit: Doesn’t sound like it –
Bunella: OH! My goodness, what – who are you two?
Black Bunny: Heh, we’re your replacements! You been downsized –
Oona Dolly: Looks to me like your costumes were downsized!
Black Bunny: Get with the times, sweetie – no more footie PJs. We’re the new wave in Easter bunnies, and it’s all about product placement! *bounce*
White Rabbit: It’s a whole new game in egg distribution, and we’re here to boost the interest in the holiday –
Bunella: Oh my heavens – I – I can’t look anymore… this is TOO shocking – *flustered*
Oona Dolly: Here now, have some respect for Bunella! Besides, you’re not proper rabbits in those get-ups –
Black Bunny: Who said we were supposed to be “proper” –*giggle*
White Rabbit: We’re rabbits all righty – we’ve got poofy little tails *wiggle* –
Chocobunny: *wolf whistle*!
Bunella: Oh, oh – my head… it aches so! Oh, oh, oh…
White Bunny: Well, time for us to go to work –
Oona Dolly: See what you’ve done! You’ve upset Bunella, and I’m pretty well riled up about this disrespect from you – you flibberdegibbits! *huff*
Black Bunny: Eh, relax – enjoy your retirement – sounds like you NEED it *snicker*!
Warwick: Heh, I know I like what I got in MY Easter basket *grin*.
Georgine: Ah-ah, watch the tail, hon – this costume’s a rental!
(I know, I know, no Sparrows this year – they’re on Spring Break! But if you need a Sparrows Easter fix, follow these links to past years’ stories –

No respect for tradition, is the lesson (if any) learned here…
