The man in the bunny suit
Flashback to Easter, 2001. I have only lived in the Pacific Northwest for a few months, and my parents are still living in Portland. I'm at their house for brunch, look out the kitchen window, and see a very tall man in a bunny suit hopping across their neighbors' yard, throwing eggs. He looks up and waves, then hops off.
"He must be a fun guy," I say.
My dad, who rarely swears, says, "Actually, he's kind of an asshole!"
Go figure - those were the neighbors that wouldn't even say "Happy Halloween" back to my little bro and parents when they went trick-or-treating. I guess it goes to show you that just about everyone can be fun sometimes.
Or maybe that some people just like to use the holidays as an excuse to play dress up.
Do you have any Easter, Passover, or spring traditions?
