Year 4, Day 152

When Jaclyn called me between work and trivia tonight, she naturally reported that Miles was “being a butt.” In an effort to help him improve his attitude, I asked her to see if she could get him on the phone with me.

“No!” he cried. “I don’t wanna talk to Daddy!”

“Well what about the Easter Bunny?” I asked Jaclyn.

“Oooo, Miles!” Jaclyn told him. “The Easter Bunny is on the phone.”

Miles was much more receptive to this, seizing the phone from Jaclyn.

“Hi Miles!” I said, in my Easter Bunny voice (which is essentially a cross between Buster Bunny from Tiny Toon Adventures and Moe Szyslak from The Simpsons). “It’s me, the Easter Bunny?”

“…HUH?” came Miles’s response.

“How are you doing today?” I continued.

Miles considered this for a moment. My ruse had worked a year ago, but now? “Daddy?” he said. “Daddy the Easter Bunny?”
