Easter Rerun


I wrote this last year at Easter time ... it was too good not to republish:

Keli was driving her two daughters home after a visit to the school's science lab. Her younger daughter showed her the "lion bunny" who just gave birth to 8 new little lion bunnies.

Here is the conversation that  followed in the car:

Keli ... "Eight Bunnies, huh? Did you see the eggs?"

Daughter #1 ... "Eggs? What are you talking about?"

Keli ... "Eggs ... you know the things that the bunnies came out of?"

(Silence)

Daughter #2 ... "Mom, there weren't any eggs."

Keli ... "Oh yeah? Well, then ... how were the bunnies born?"

Daughter #1 ... "Seriously mom? They have babies like you do."

Keli ... "Well ... um ... I knew that ... I was just testing you ..."

Daughter #1 ... "No you weren't ... you thought they came from eggs."

Later that night ...

Keli ... "You know when I asked you about the eggs ... here's the thing. Easter baskets have always come with ... what? Eggs and chocolate bunnies ... right? Do you ever see a chocolate chicken in the basket? No. So ... logically you would think that bunnies lay eggs ... right?"

(Silence, again)

Daughter #1 ... "Sure ... when you are 3 years old ... Mom, please don't tell anyone else that, okay?"



Hey Keli, I believe you  ... and FYI ... I did find proof of a possible suspect (left).

Oh yeah. As if the title isn't funny enough ... the plotline, the characters and the writing will keep you in stitches. Many thanks...
