Cranky Bunny and a Thankful Easter Dinner
It was Easter morning. Cranky Bunny was in his kitchen with his best friend, Julie. He was very cranky.
“I have nothing to eat for my Easter dinner,” cried Cranky Bunny. “How can I have Easter dinner without any food?”
“What do you mean you have no food?” asked Julie, opening up one of Cranky Bunny’s kitchen cupboards. “I see cans of vegetables and some pasta. That would make a good meal.”
“Possibly,” said Cranky Bunny. “If you weren’t a rabbit.”
“Yes,” agreed Julie. “I suppose that is true. What do you normally eat for Easter?”
“Carrots,” said Cranky Bunny. “Lots and lots of carrots.”
“That can’t be too hard,” said Julie.” Being a rabbit, you must have lots of carrots.”
“But I don’t,” said Cranky Bunny. “I ran out yesterday.”
“That is impossible,” said Julie. “I saw the big stash of carrots you buried just the other day. There is no way you could have eaten all those carrots already.”
“Oh my,” said Cranky Bunny, actually smiling. “I forgot all about all those carrots.”
“Good,” said Julie. “It looks like you will have lots to eat for Easter dinner.”
“Yes,” said Cranky Bunny. “I am vey thankful to you for reminding me about those carrots. Would you like to stay and have Easter dinner with me?”
“I would love to,” said Julie. “I can peel the carrots if you like.”
“That isn’t necessary,” said Cranky Bunny. “I eat them raw.”
Cranky Bunny went to where he had his carrots buried and grabbed a handful.
“These are very tasty,” said Julie, eating a couple of raw carrots.
Julie and Cranky Bunny enjoyed a very tasty Easter dinner together and Cranky Bunny was very thankful to Julie for reminding him about the carrots he had buried.
