The Swimmy was late for school today. And, no, it wasn’t because I couldn’t get my ass in gear due to daylights savings time (although, that was the start of it).

She was late because of a bunny.

You see, we have this wild bunny that has begun to visit our house the past few weeks. Mostly he just hops behind the bushes in the front yard, but today (TODAY!) he was in our backyard. He was just hopping around nibbling on the grass that so desperately needs to be fertilized.

The Swimmy was completely rapt by the little furry dude. We stood there for at least 15 minutes just watching him nibble, hop, clean his paws and scratch a mysterious itch. She giggled and blinked and grinned and I? was not letting something as silly as taking attendance break into this little moment.

I may be dragging ass a bit this morning, but this was the best way to start a Monday I’ve seen in a long time.

    I SO agree! I used a squirrel digging in my backyard as the excuse to pause my mopping yesterday. I sat and watched him for about 25 minutes before realizing I had other shit to do. Nature is so fabulous! 🙂 I guess everyone gets a little twitter-pated this time of year.
    Attendance, at-schmendance!

    I can hardly think of a better excuse for being late. In fact I think we should only be required to work if and only if there is definitely NOT a bunny in your backyard or something equally edifying.
