Alphabet Day 23: R

My R day: really excited for my first Monday at work, Rocket Summer, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, room (writers' room, that is, and I wasn't cleaning it this time!), Raspberry Snapple, Ruffles, Robert Pattinson (music NOT Twilight), reading scripts, road rage (let's be honest, I have this every day), rushed home in time for Castle, really thought about packing but didn't, and rest.

R song: Ron Pope - "A Drop In The Ocean"

R word: rabbit

Everyone knew that the Rabbit was the best Rabbi in the forest. Every morning he would get up and don his tallit and his yarmulke. He would also eat a carrot because he's a rabbit, and it's kosher.

This morning, though, was extra special. It was the beginning of Hanukkah. The Rabbit retrieved his menorah from his burrow and placed it on the tree stump outside. He lit the first candle and left it burning for everyone to see.

Not ten minutes later did the Rabbit hear a loud knock on his door. He opened it to find the Bear, not the ones in the soda ads, but the one who wears human clothes and pretends he's a park ranger. So, the Bear told him he had to put out the candle because it could start a forest fire. The Rabbit understood, of course, the dangers of a forest fire, but he also knew the importance of keeping his tradition.

So, he went back to his burrow, ordered an electric menorah on eBay, and plugged it in to the power strip located right there in the forest.

It was a Hanukkah miracle, indeed!
