Everybody Loves Free Stuff
I was scrolling through Facebook the other morning, when something caught my eye.
It was brown and furry, with big feet, a pink button nose, and long floppy ears. OMG someone was giving away bunnies!!!
Immediately, I was in love.
And I started going over all these plans in my mind. Plans of how I might bring this little puff ball into my life.
Because it would be as easy as stopping by the local farm, picking out a rabbit, and bringing him home. Easy peasy.
In my town, there are several large farms. These farms sell fresh produce, flowers, eggs, baked goods, various crafts, and are just altogether fun to go visit. Lots of times they’ll support a charity event by selling their wares, and also include a petting zoo to entertain the kids. Or me — cuz, like, I’m just a big kid at heart.
One of the events going on that very day was not terribly far from my house. They were having all of the cool stuff above, plus goats, chickens, and a bunch of other fun activities.
But the part that totally had me lingering on the post was about the bunnies. Apparently the farm was partnering with a local rescue organization to rehome these bunnies for adoption.
And their pictures were sooo cute — big fluffy squishy puffalumps, sitting on the laps of volunteers. They looked so happy, so content, and so cuddly! And they were FREE!!!!
OMG, how could we NOT get a bunny??
