Legend of the Rabbit Slayer

At nine months along with our son, my wife tried to stay restlessly active. The only problem with that is that I too became restlessly active. Her biggest ambition was to plant that garden a couple of months before and a 12 by 12 area was dig with nothing more than weed-pulling hands and a spade shovel. It wasn’t much but it had potential.

Every day she watered it and tended to it. It seemed to relax her, pulling weeds and pruning the ugly parts. But as with any good and marvelous thing some trouble is bound to come along. For her, it was the rabbits. She would see them come and run out the door of the house and poof they would disappear. She would dream about them coming for the next few days. And every morning for those days she would have more damage to show me. Back and forth the rabbits and my wife struggled for the rights to this 12 by 12 war zone for the next two months.

Nearing the end of her ninth month of pregnancy, we come home from getting her supreme taco from taco bell. We pulled it the drive way and it happened. She had all she was going to take and she was going to take no more. She took off from that truck as quick as any pregnant woman could and that rabbit didn’t move until she got almost half way across the yard, as though it was taunting her. It started to move and she picked up a dirt clod out of frustration and threw it for all it was worth…and the clog hit the rabbit directly in the back of the head!…And thus the legend of the rabbit slayer was born. (heehee…she’s gonna slay me for this one.LOL!)
