requiem for bugs bunny, part deux
By the time Stevie Wonder answered, I had my laughter tamped down from shrieks to gurgles. The conversation went like this:
Elmer: I'm getting my gun right now.
Elmer: because I know you are calling to tell me you've seen a *%&#@!$ rabbit.
Me: (I'm feeling kind of creeped out, like he read my mind) well, ummm, yes I did.
Elmer: I'm getting my gun and headed out the door right NOW. Bye.
Me: hold it Bub, the rabbit is in the neighbor's yard. You can't stalk Bugs on someone else's property. Besides, he was still running the last time I saw him.
Elmer: *%&#@!$ rabbits...why are they in my garden? (I think this was rhetorical and I don't think he really expected an answer.)
Me: because they are RABBITS?
Elmer: (more expletives)...
Me: (snorking) have a good day honey!
...life is good. And Bugs lives to graze another day...
