The Suitcase Lady

I’m so glad I am not a rabbit! As I inform the kids in my science classes, everybody wants to have rabbits for lunch. Coyotes, wolves, eagles, bobcats, house cats, even sweet old pet dogs all want a bunny burger.

Of course, nature is not totally callous. Rabbits do have a few things going for them. Take those side mounted eyes. If I had those, I could see what the kids in the classroom were doing behind me.

Rabbits’ swivel ears are a good feature, too. My hearing isn’t as acute as it used to be, and directional ears would be excellent for scooping up sounds.

Rabbits’ motherhood duties are definitely a negative. When everybody wants to eat you, someone has to make more “yous”. Guess who gets the job? For a mom rabbit, life is just one big nonstop nursery and preschool.

So as Easter draws near, we can count our blessings. We could have been born rabbits. I definitely hope reincarnation is a hoax.
