I’m not exactly sure how it happened, but we’ve got a rabbit in the house.
I’ve been able to piece together a few clues. Apparently somebody we don’t even know got a rabbit for their kid but then the kid wasn’t interested in it. This someone is apparently on the board of a local charter school. A friend of ours teaches there. Somewhere along the line Xy mentioned, as a joke, that she could take the rabbit if she could get a job teaching at the school. (This was back when she was still on the hunt for gainful employment.) This joke was somehow misconstrued as a serious offer. As dialog continued, Xy did not seem to pick up on the fact that a misunderstanding had occurred. She never even got an interview at that school, by the way. But yesterday the rabbit was delivered. At least he came with a nice cage.
As for the rabbit, he’s very cute. Xy named him Nicholas after the Ole Risom/Richard Scarry classic, I Am a Bunny, one of Persephone’s favorites.
