The Easterbunny Liz The ad in the newspaper looked harmless. Small and at the end of the page was the words-Easterbunny needed to local Easteregg hunt. Two days only. Apply at 1245 Webster Street. Looking at that small ad, I wondered exactly what an easterbunny would have to do. Thinking back to my childhood I remembered a person in a large pink suit dancing around and tossing a few eggs tot he children. How hard could that be? I would have to wear a goofy suit for two days and then get paid. One weekend! How hard could it be? Later sitting downtown in a room at 1245 Webster Street, I figured I had made a good move. the only other person sitting in the room with me was an older Mexican guy. His clothes looked dirty and his hair was shaggy. I gave him a smile and he returned my smile with a huge toothy grin. Relaxing, I settled back. I had definitely got this job. Suddenly a women in a blue pants suit swept into the room. She held a clip board and a cell phone. She smiled brightly. Hello! IM Mrs. Barnes , Thank you both for coming down here to apply, for this years annual Easter Bunny. Your name please Miss. Krissy Larkin. She turned to the Mexican guy. And you Sir? Que.? She looked at him with her head cocked. Sir, do you speak English? The Mexican man shrugged and then nodded his head. The women turned back to me and pushed her hair off her forehead. Congratulations Krissy larkin, you have the job. You have to come in tomorrow to be fitted for the suit, say around two? The Mexican man stood. he looked confused. senorita....please...job....no? I suddenly felt a sadness. what if this man had a wife and children at home, who were counting on their father to get a job today. He would have to go home and explain to his Wife and children he hadnt got one. A young college student had taken his job. I stood. You know every Easter bunny could use a side kick. Mrs. Barnes looked at me with big eyes. A sidekick? I nodded. Yes, he could be my sidekick...Floppy! A new attraction this year. Mrs. barnes I could watch him and make sure he wouldnt stray away. She pursed her lips. Yes Krissy I do believe you are right. A second bunny this year could bring in more children. Wonderful idea. Both of you come in tomorrow at two for fittings. The Mexican man looked at me with confused eyes. I put my arm around him. OK Floppy, two tomorrow. OK? Que.? ********** Click here to read the rest of this story (64 more lines)
