The Easter Bunny Breakfast
Denis Leary pitching.
Funny how we differ on what we find scary or kinky or odd.
We went to breakfast with the Easter Bunny on Saturday. Now the EB is one dude I've always found outre. I'd love to know who came up with the idea. EB is just a poor excuse for Santa now that the kids all sit on his furry lap and get their picture taken.
But that wasn't what bothered me. The EB was accompanied by a dude wearing a tux and top hat. And I mean escorted really; they came down the aisle as if they'd just been wed. Is this traditional?
My son told me it was because EB couldn't see through his mask. But why put the escort in a tux. How about a farmer's outfit instead? Do we really want our two-year olds dreaming of a dude in a tux escorting a huge rabbit down the aisle of a room used for wedding receptions later in the day. Do we want our kids to be exploring this moment in a shrink's office 25 years from now.
Do you find this weird or is it me? What freaks you out that other people don't seem concerned with?
