I Giggled and Remembered

While taking a spin through Blogland this evening I happened upon a post by the fabulous Phlegmfatale.  It gave me a giggle when I remembered a couple of stories about FH and Tempie.

Most people know rabbits are obligate nasal breathers, meaning they can only breathe through their noses.  This results in the disgustingly cute and constant nose wiggling everyone sees.  A few years ago FH started calling Tempie the "Tasty Bunny."  Upon my objection he said (to her), "wiggle your nose if you're tasty, Tempie.  [Nose wiggles ensue.]  See, she agrees with me!"  I really couldn't say anything at that point.

Since then it's become a running gag.  When Tempie gets subcutaneous fluids after dental procedures FH says it's "time for her flavor injection."  When she gets dried fruit as a treat it's "mmm.... flavorful stuffing."

Once he even carried her around in the wok.

I swear she regally observed her domain from the air.  I wish I'd gotten video, since she's the one who climbed into it.  Granted FH held it down for her, but she decided to give it a spin.
In case anyone gets the wrong idea about FH and Tempie, I can assure you that it's just he odd sense of humor and a great deal of mutual affection.
