“Julie,” said Cranky Bunny, to his friend that showed up at his place. “What are you doing here?”
“I saw the sun was shining,” said Julie. “It is a beautiful Easter day.”
“What is so beautiful about it? “asked Cranky Bunny, in a cranky voice.
“Two things,” said Julie. “The sun is shining and it is Easter day. Why are you being cranky?”
“You know I am always cranky,” said Cranky Bunny.
“I think you need to get outside,” said Julie. “Let’s go for a walk.”
“Do we have to?” asked Cranky Bunny.
“Yes,” said Julie.” I think it will do you some good and maybe you won’t be so cranky.”
Cranky Bunny reluctantly went outside. He had to admit that the sun was warm on his face and it did feel good. It felt so good in fact that he smiled.
“See,” said Julie. “I was right. Being outdoors is helping you.”
“What are you talking about?” asked Cranky Bunny, back to his usual cranky voice. “I am still cranky.”
“I saw your smile,” said Julie. “I think you are pretending to be cranky because you like being cranky.”
“That isn’t true,” said Cranky Bunny.
Cranky Bunny noticed a field up ahead that had tons of Easter eggs spread out all over it. He immediately smiled again as he picked some up.
“Happy Easter,” said Julie.
“Happy Easter to you as well,” said Cranky Bunny, grinning from her ear to ear.
