A rabbit named Nicholas Augustus moved into my driveway. I’ve tried to video him, but so far no luck.
This will be a short post, thanks to the migraine I have coming on. It also might not make sense, which probably has more to do with me than my migraine.
I had a rabbit.
His name is Nicholas Augustus (because what else do you name a rabbit?) and he appeared in my driveway a week ago.
You probably don’t know this, but my driveway is long. Like, 800m long. I know this because the pizza delivery guys measured it, but that’s another story.
A week ago when I was driving to work Nicholas Augustus shot out of the ditch beside the driveway, probably thinking the world was ending. He ran just ahead of the car all the way to the road, at which point he and I headed off in different directions.
I met him again on my way home. This time the car chased him up the driveway a good way until he finally dove in the bushes.
It happened again the next day, and the next.
The first few times Nicholas ran as if a train full of the fast kind of zombies was chasing him, but after a while he got rather blasé about the whole exercise. Sure he was hopping away, but it was a half-hearted effort, and I had to drive at a crawl to keep from accidentally running him over.
No zombies here, he’d decided. Just this noisy metal moose interrupting my breakfast again.
I got rather fond of Nicholas and decided to get out my camera and video him running in front of the car. In other words, do the exact thing guaranteed to make him disappear.
So far I have four videos of the car trundling along the driveway, but no Nicholas.
I wonder where he is. I hope he’s okay.
I miss my rabbit.
