I hope he gets hazard pay*

(In which the Easter Bunny is trampled by marauding children and over-caffeinated parents.)

I was not one of the trampling parents because I had found the coffee and danish table inside and forgot completely about escorting my kids to the starting line.

Yes sirree, it was the danishes. It wasn't that I realized I knew some of the other adults. Adults who are now, astonishingly, married with kids. Adults with whom I may or may not have broken up in an embarrassing fashion while in my 20s. Ahem.

It's enough to make one run away screaming.

Me, I mean. Not them.

Well, maybe them, too.

And while we're filing things under "run away screaming," I can't imagine why kids wouldn't want to have their pictures taken with the Easter Bunny:

*the Easter Bunny, not the ex-boyfriends. Although some of them may have deserved it.

Whoa, where did they get that bunny? Donnie Darko?

TwoBusy said...

Wow -- they brought in the special guest-rabbit from "Monty Python and the Holy Grail."

Great decision. How many of your ex-whatevers did it kill?

Celia said...

Cheese danish?

Prune danish?


I have an ex-fiasco that comes by my work every few months. I hide until he leaves.

Susan said...

Newt - Pretty sure.

TwoBusy - "What's he do? Nibble your bum?"

Celia - Ex-fiasco. Mind if I steal that? And preferably cheese.

The Upstairs Neighbor said...

Mmm, danishes. You didn't tell me that part... That rabbit is WRONG and scares the bejeebers out of me.

Ex-fiasco has been duly added to the new words list along with the washmclean and molly snoggles.

JAbel said...

The Bunny's tongue reminds one of the Rolling Stones Lips emblem.In the wicked funny Martin Amis novel "Money" the main character Self's car brand is a Fiasco.

Celia said...

Steal away.

I love cheese danish. There is a bakery down the road from me that sells two feet long cheese danish.

I am forever trying to think of an excuse to buy them.

I started laughing at that bunny before I even scrolled down to reveal his "Something stinks in here" face.

Ahhh, scaring children. What fun.

Kristin @ Going Country said...

Dude. That bunny ain't right. He looks like the sort that would spike the Cadbury eggs with rum and then laugh as the children stumbled around.
