Rabbits Rabbits Rabbits Day
Why is that silly little saying at the top of the page? Well let me give you a brief history of the rabbits day saying:
It's a long standing competition in my family to be the first one in the household to say "Rabbits Rabbits Rabbits Day." On the first day of every month or at the new year. If you successfully beat out everyone in your family then you 'win' good luck for the whole month or new year.
The history of this traditional saying comes from England, and specifically for my family, my Great Dad (a.k.a. Grandfather). He's English, so it makes sense.
Anyway, there are rules to the saying. It has to be spoken where the person can hear. So no emailing and all that. Although I still text after I've said it almost like a 'receipt' so it's time and date stamped and they (my family) can't deny it was said.----yes, I'm *THAT* hardcore about it.
This month I was determined to win. I did all my usual bluffing to my dad, saying he had no chance to win, etc... I went to bed and set my alarm for 11:59. Just so I had a minuted to get my vocal chords warmed up. I woke up said "Rabbits Rabbits Rabbits Day" and went back to sleep. I was worried that no one actually heard me. I yelled my brothers name a few times to have a witness but I can't be 100% sure he listened.
I was dozing off again, and I heard a gumble-ly voice say "Rabbits Rabbits Rabbits Day" outside my bedroom door. After panicking thinking it was a burglar, I realized it was my Dad. Who happened to be 6 minutes late at 12:06am.
He says he won and I say I won. BUT if a Tree Falls in the woods and no one's there....
Anyway, I called him at work only to argue,
This family superstition is always going to continue, and every new month will be a war zone.
