My Funny Bunny – Stream of Consciousness Saturday

 

Sometimes I have to pause while I am in the middle of being busy, doing things in the house. I hear some little paws and wonder what they are up to. I wonder if that bunny of mine is ok. 

So, I take a peak and see he is sitting comfortably in his cage. I go back to work in the house and set about my business. In a minute  I hear a bell ring. Then in a few seconds I hear that bell ring again. 

It is the bunny ringing his bell to get my attention. I got him this bell a year ago. I remembered that a bunny I had long ago used to ring a bell when he was ready to come inside from playing in the fenced in yard. 

So I got this bunny a bell. It was in the bird section of Pet Smart. I attached it to the top of the cage. He can reach it with his little nose and ring. He knows very well now, that I come when he rings. 

You might say that he has conditioned me similar to Pavlov’s dog….or is he the one who is conditioned? Actually I think we are both conditioned. He knows to ring the bell when he is hungry and I know to jump when he calls. 

But the funny thing is that sometimes I answer the ringing. put food in the cage, get him all settled, and then he rings. 

He is not ringing for food. He is not hurt. 

If I ignore this type of ring, he will get very frantic in his ringing, the longer I do not come. Until he is banging the bell with his little nose, back and forth. 

So what is he ringing for? 

When I get there, I open the cage. He sticks out his head and brushes against my hand. He tucks his little head into the palm of my hand and stays there. 

He is calling for love.

January 2 Pause / Paws Writing Challenge HERE

The above  writing is for the Stream of Consciousness Saturday challenge. You can see more information about this HERE at the Linda G. Gill blog

Here are the rules:

1. Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing, (typos can be fixed) and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.
2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence – one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry – it doesn’t matter. Just let the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.
3. There will be a prompt every week. I will post the prompt here on my blog on Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a subject. For instance, I will not say “Write about dogs”; the prompt will be more like, “Make your first sentence a question,” “Begin with the word ‘The’,” or simply a single word to get your started.
4. Ping back! It’s important, so that I and other people can come and read your post! For example, in your post you can write “This post is part of SoCS:” and then copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of this post into yours.  Your link will show up in my comments for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top.
5. Read at least one other person’s blog who has linked back their post. Even better, read everyone’s! If you’re the first person to link back, you can check back later, or go to the previous week, by following my category, “Stream of Consciousness Saturday,” which you’ll find right below the “Like” button on my post.
6. Copy and paste the rules (if you’d like to) in your post. The more people who join in, the more new bloggers you’ll meet and the bigger your community will get!
7. As a suggestion, tag your post “SoCS” and/or “#SoCS” for more exposure and more views.
8. Have fun!

Time for all Good little Insomniacs to catch the Bunny and then go to Bed

bunny face

MY HEAD : It is 2:26 am…time for all good little insomniacs to go to sleep.

MY HEAD: What ? You have to catch the bunny first?

ME: Yes, He is hiding in the bedroom somewhere. Probably behind the white bookshelf, where he likes to rest.

MY HEAD: Ok, well see if you can get him to come out.

ME: That is going to be tricky. He has his own mind about things. But, hang on…I will try to get him to come out….

ME: Bunny, Bunny ! My favorite sweet bunny, who always obeys Mama….

MY HEAD: No, he doesn’t!

ME: Shhh!

MY HEAD: Go on already…

ME: Bunny , Bunny…Time to go into your cage. Mama loved having you hopping around the room and dancing around my feet while I was working in the kitchen. Mama brought the cage in  here, so you can sleep next to the bed to keep me company. Please come out from behind the white shelf and go to bed. Mama is tired…

BUNNY: I am comfortable here, behind the white bookshelf. I just got all settled in.

MY HEAD: Oh, you won’t get him to come out now. How are we going to sleep?

ME: Stop nagging me. I will get him to come out…

BUNNY: You sound very confident of that. LOL  but I will be a good bunny , I am not behind the shelf. I am sitting right at the bottom of your bed.

ME: Oh look at you ! Such a good bunny. Come on. I will tuck you in. Kiss Kiss.

BUNNY: Goodnight Mama Annie

ME: Goodnight bunny 🙂
