It’s the first of the month. RABBITS!

RABBITS!My wife Robbie and I have done a competitive version of the Rabbits superstition since before we were married. We included our kids in it as they grew, and even now that they’re all out of the house, we still keep it up.

We’ve had to add some new rules over the years to deal with the new technologies. Anything real-time is legit. So IM is okay, but not voicemail, email, texting, or tweets.

Robbie tried the handwriting-on-the-mirror approach today… pretty lame in that that’s been outlawed for years.

What variation of Rabbits do you use?

    Griff neglected to mention that I took pity on him at midnight when he was sound asleep (snoring I might add)… after having difficulty sleeping with his POOR shoulder… and refrained from waking him up with a shout in his ear….. RABBITS! Next month there will be NO mercy, as he has refused to recognize that I, indeed did get him with “Rabbits”! Who is on my side… he is such a stickler for rules!

    Thanks to bartender Matt Holmquist at the Cow last night, I was able to ‘get’ my son Graham, making me 5 for 5 for the day… my first ‘Rabbits’ sweep in several years.

  3. Alright you Wigley’s, I was gonna do a big monologue on compassion and sharing the luck and was trying to figure out who deserves compassion the most, but then I realized how silly this is. Thanks for turning me on to a new game…and good luck!

    Come on you guys…it is “rabbit, rabbit, rabbit.” That is the way you will have good luck for the month. As it must be said first thing upon arising, we only make it about half the time. Wikipedia relays that it is a children’s superstition, but I can attest that it works for old folks, too.
