People. I barely even have words. Because it’s school picture time again & there’s livestock involved again.
You remember Peanut Butter the Pony from 2012? This time it was a pair of fluffy rabbits & I was taking bets over text message on whether or not the Hibster would actually hold a bunny. The little girls in his class were a’flutter over the soft! cuddly! bunnies! but he looked at the rabbit cage like we were all drunk for even suggesting this nonsense.
I’m not entirely sure what they bribed him with, but lo & behold, he snuggled a live rabbit.
I’m a little bummed because the photographer captured zero of his personality unlike last time & I really wanted a good bunny picture to put next to the cowboy on the beach picture.
But poor Hibby was feeling the worst ever thanks to a wicked cold & his momma buying CVS brand vapor bath wash. You know that vapor-infused bath wash that is made by Johnson & Johnson? I normally buy the Target knock-off & it is so lovely & soothing. I pour a little in the bathtub & the steam helps the vapors clear him up before he goes to bed. But this time I snagged a CVS version. Bad idea, self. Harrison errupted in a nasty rash all over that was quite painful. Hands, chest, back, face…you name it. A week of Burt’s Bees & Aquaphor later, he’s looking good again but the Leprosy rash is now captured for all eternity.
Even the rabbit is like, “Is his hand going to fall off while he’s holding me? Is this contagious cross-species? Is someone going to come get me?”
p.s. because someone will ask – those bunnies are privately loved & owned by the photographer as family pets. they are not from a bunny farm or purchased for the pictures.
