"the rabbit"

grizelda had just split up with her longtime boyfriend ... very sad and lots of tears .... percy had moved out ...

anyway .... one morning she walks out the front of the house and finds the next door neighbour's rabbit dead on her front lawn .... stiff, a little mangled and muddy ... she cries and cries .... she can't bring herself to tell the neighbour or her two young kids ....

so she takes the rabbit inside and cleans it up, cleans all the fur etc .....

when the family and kids next door are out she sneaks into their backyard and puts the rabbit into her little hutch and walks away ... she cries again

a few days later she walks outside and the lady next door is there in the garden ...

“hi grizelda” ..... “hi how are you etc etc nice day”

the lady says ... "the funniest thing happened the other day ..... "oh, what?" replies grizelda ....

"our little bunny rabbit died .... the kids were so upset .... so we had a little burial for her ... in the back garden , put a little cross up and the kids said a little prayer and then the kids went and played with poppy our little pup .....

just a few days later the rabbit turned up in her hutch again all clean ...... "

..... grizelda of course said nothing ......

the end.....
