And if you go chasing rabbits

does anyone else know about, much less care about "rabbit rabbit?"

at the end of each month rogray inevitably starts on me about making sure we say "rabbit rabbit" when we wake up on the 1st of the month. it has to be the first thing out of our mouths and it is very important.




there has yet to be a month where we have achieved this and i think there are a few reasons as to why:

a) i don't care enough to actually remember or place a lot of importance on this and

b) who the hell can remember to say "rabbit rabbit" first thing in the morning when you are thinking things like "why do i have to wake up so early?" or "why is there a faint taste of ass in my mouth? i did brush my teeth last night, right?"

obviously the same thing happened this month and rogray is upset all over again that we didn't say it. . .he is very disappointed.

i'd also like to point out that the first line of the wikipedia entry on it is: “Rabbit rabbit” is a common superstition, held particularly among children.

not that i'm implying that rogray is being childish but i am going to draw the line at tooth fairy visits should he lose any teeth. . .

It is emotionally healthy to let the child in you get out at least on the first of each month. Rogray is right to be disappointed. lighten up! And get out of bed already!!!
