25.  How Bats Went Blind and Bunnies Got Big Feet: Part 1
“What’s your book about?” I asked Gerry.  He told me the fable of Bat and Bunny. 

One day Rabbit and Bat were walking down the road.  In those days rabbits had small feet and ears.  Bats were known for their keen eyesight.  Rabbits were known for loving grapes a little too much, which is why Rabbit spotted the open gate to Farmer’s vineyard.  

Bat knew what Rabbit was thinking.  He reminded Rabbit how he’d gorged himself last time he’d had grapes.  He pointed overhead to Hawk flying slow circles, guarding the vineyard.  “My friend,” Bat said to Rabbit, “For all you know, Farmer is sitting on his porch with his shotgun on his lap.”

Rabbit thought for a minute, shook his head, and sprinted toward the vineyard.  It was a decision he’d regret for a long time.

Today I’ll listen carefully to friends’ warnings.

Needles Not For Knitting is a work of fiction.  Any resemblance between the characters and anyone you might know is purely coincidental.
