A Rabbit with a Bad Habit


My little rabbit
has a very bad habit -
he likes to tweet 
while crossing the street!

I am very vexed, 
why must he text 
and not mind the way? 
has he that much to say?


Featured: A worried friend,
sitting by the window,
looking at the street.

So clever Amalia, and Oh Dear, why do they text while crossing the street? I see it every day? Naughty little rabbit - but he is very cute, isn't he :) xx

Hope the little rabbit will be rid of its bad habit. Stay safe. Wishing you Happy and Healthy New Year.

I love the way you make such enchanting use of a little scrap of lace - and build a whole story around it.
Happy New Year to you and yours!

Hello,

Yes, the cute rabbit must take care crossing the street. Texting while walking and driving can be dangerous. Have a great day and a happy January! I wish you all the best in 2022, a happy and healthy New Year!

So true.. that little friend should watch what he is doing.. I do hope he looks both ways before he crosses the street.

Sandy said...

I don't think that little rabbit is alone in having his head in his phone. One look around these days and many are glued to it.

Handmade in Israel said...

Such a naughty rabbit! He needs to be more careful. Happy 2022 Amalia. Nice to see you posting again xx

Your worried friend and his (her?) cottage is delightful. There's reason to worry when a naughty rabbit is crossing streets while texting. Do hope he mends his ways in 2022! Speaking of which, I hope your new year is off to a good start. I think of you often. Hugs.

What a cute little rabbit. I hope he doesn't learn the hard way that even bunnies shouldn't text and walk.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

YOur sweet rabbit is not the only one with that bad habit. The last verse works for humans too! For that matter, I wonder about people who text all the time even when they're not crossing the street ))
