That Easter Bunny is a bad bad rabbit

Ian with the easter bunny

Let’s just say that Ian looks skeptical for good reason. After all, I learned at a very tender age that:

1. The Easter Bunny “breaks into homes” whilst children are at Sunday School and while mothers are “trying to tidy up the house.”

2. Even “chasing him with a broom” doesn’t prevent him from “hopping around wildly and hiding chocolate and jelly beans,” which are “horrible for your teeth and for your health, in general.”

3. He has “absolutely no respect for carpeting” and “tracks mud all over the place,” causing mothers to spend their “whole morning vigorously vacuuming,” so that there are “no paw prints” in evidence by the time the children get back home.

I got some updated information at the Palisades Mall the other day, though. What I learned is that:

1. The Easter Bunny now needs to wear spectacles. (Must be all that map… and GPS reading he has done over all these years in order to deliver eggs around the world). I think it’s a good look for him.

2. He’s very gentle with three month-olds.

3. By charging 1 million dollars for every photograph, he’s got a great gig going: relative to hopping, sitting there like this seems a lot like passive income. After all, it’s not about working harder, it’s about working smarter.

And it’s worth. Every. Cent.

Have a great one!

  1. I’ve heard about that guy – good to hear he is doing well with the photo business and still able to give out all that chocolate…another sign the economy is picking up.

    • Yes, this goes on in malls across the country – not quite as common as Santa, but still! And yes, lots of kids seem to be afraid of him! πŸ™‚

      Thanks for visiting πŸ™‚

  2. OMG, That expression is hilarious! LIke… “hey mom, who the hell is this guy and how long do I have to sit here”. I swear this may be the first Easter picture I’ve seen where the child isn’t screaming his head off. Ian looks like he’s totally got this covered. Big rabbits with glasses…. no problem! Love it! Happy Easter to you and your family. Ian’s first Easter basket – that had to be fun!

    • Yup, that look speaks volumes. Poor kid gets shuffled all over the place and dressed up in all kinds of stuff and he goes along with it pretty well so far! As of yet no Easter basket for Ian…but come to think of it…maybe I’ll put him IN one – I feel a photo shoot coming on! Have a nice weekend, yourself – may the jelly beans be plentiful (hey you have a great place to work them off…) πŸ™‚
