How does a rotisserie chicken turn into a stuffed rabbit? That is exactly what I was wondering when it happened the other day. First, you must know, my mom loves chicken, especially rotisserie chicken, and I love stuffed rabbits.You see, it was a simple thing really. Mom didn’t feel like cooking. The HyVee ad came in the mail with a deal on rotisserie chicken, and Mom began drooling like I do for a bone. She decided to pop over to the store and get one since they were on sale for like two dollars off. Hyvee is just five minutes from our house, so it is easy to grab things there.
Now for the problem. They did not have any more of the birds ready when she got there. Evidently, Mom is not the only one nuts for chicken in the area. She had to wait ten minutes for the ones on the rotisserie to finish grilling. In the meantime, she somehow landed in the pet aisle where she saw “the rabbit”. It was love at first sight, and she knew I would love it. The only problem is she saved two bucks on the chicken, but spent ten on my new rabbit! What a great marketing ploy from HyVee! Yes, my mom is an easy target!
I do love my new rabbit. He looks real, and he has a squeaker. Squeakers are not my thing, but they don’t bother me if they happen to squeak. I prefer to tote my rabbit around the house proudly like a hunting trophy.
You know Bailie is the squeaker queen of the hound world. She runs around like a puppy, bouncing off furniture, squeaking her toys. Of course, I left my new rabbit unattended, and she grabbed him. For her it was fun to make him squeal, but also to tease me with him.
I know my sister well, and she would tire of squeaking him fairly quickly, giving me the chance to get him back. That is exactly what happened too. The poor rabbit had a belly ache from being squeaked so much!
Now you know how a rotisserie chicken can turn into a rabbit. I was truly surprised to get this cool rabbit, and I am very proud to call him my own. Don’t get me wrong, I still carry around our other rabbits, but this guy is the new favorite. As for Mom, her love of chicken was expensive that day, but she is simply happy I love my rabbit so much. Yes, she did enjoy her chicken too.
