I had a chance to spend some time enjoying the outdoors with my good friend, EB. It was a good opportunity to talk about what’s ahead.
me: So EB, Easter Sunday has come and gone. Do you take it easy between now and next Easter?
EB: Are you kidding? A rabbit’s work is never done! I’ve got a ton of things to do, for starters I’ve got bunny appearance events throughout the year. There’s the fan mail that has piled up and of course keeping my eye on you and helping you with the book. And, I’ve decided to read the Bible this year.
me: Wow, so you’re finally going to read it? Maybe this is a sign of the apocalypse. I never thought you’d actually read it.
EB: Well, I found out that the Bible is really a collection of books, not just one book. It’s a library of sorts.
me: And what led you to this sudden curiosity about the books of the Bible?
EB: I’ve been reading GK Chesterton. The guy was either a complete loon or one of the most brilliant people on earth at the time he was alive. Here are a few of his quotes that I really like.
The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love
our enemies; probably because generally they are the same people.
A good novel tells us the truth about its hero; but a bad novel tells us the truth about its author.
The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult and left untried.
The poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese.
I owe my success to having listened respectfully to the very best advice, and then going away and doing the exact opposite.
me: You’re turning into quite the sophisticated rabbit. Next, you’ll be eating caviar.
EB: You can keep the caviar, I’ll keep my peeps.
