The Creation of Fireboy


I was gardening the other day and not giving much thought to the cottontail rabbits in my yard. Turns out, they had stolen a teacup from my cupboard, and were starting a fire dance. They started wailing and doing weird arm movements around the teacup. Once I heard their chanting and wailing, my amazingly perceptive mind realized something terrificly terrible was up.

With lightning quickness, amazing dexterity, and a spur of fear I ran to disperse the evil congregation of satanic cottontail rabbits.

Alas, I was too late. The rabbits had just managed to conjure fireboy from the depths of the teacup, and there would be no bottling him back up now. The evil rabbits had succeeded in another step towards their destruction of the suburbs. Not only had they trashed my grass and assaulted my peppers, but they had now unleashed the fury of fireboy upon the unsuspecting public... fireboy, fireboy, fireboy... a little boy with an ability to fly and a penchant for fire. Don't be surprised if you see your garden in flames, your car on fire, and a meteoric streak of fire in the sky... it is fireboy.

Ah, so if I should see this...Fireboy...I will know just who to blame! Rabbits and their teacups. Oh, the mischief they'll get up to.

Your stories crack me up. And fireboy rules!

Laura: Rabbits and teacups are a vicious combination :)

Manuel: Fireboy, off to the rescue! Errr, I mean, off to the destruction of stuff!

Is that why I have to keep watering my mint and cherry tomato plants each day? Seems like the water I just gave them dries up immediately. Hmmm. Those darn rabbits with their conjuring.

I love that photo, it made me laugh (I think it was the bunnies and the successful smile on Fireboy's face).

Mrs. Hairy Woman: Thanks so much! Great to see you back as well :)

Trey: Oh yes, this is the reality I live every day. I'm hardcore like that.

I have often feared the satanic cottontail rabbits, but everybody said it was my imagination. Thank you for assuring me that everybody else is insane. I will be on the lookout for fireboy. Awsome blog, sir.

Sebastien said...

Thanks Aliencg! I promise you aren't crazy. Satanic cottontail rabbits are everywhere. Even my therapist kindly nods her head and says, "Yes Sebastien, yes, there are evil cottontail rabbits."

My backyard is too small. All we have are skunks and squirrels and they told me the other day they don't master fire yet.

Not fair.

Sebastien said...

Zhu: They will learn, and all will be for naught.

Sebastien, I think you should make children's book. Any interest? Any possibility we could collaborate? I see stories like this as a new kind of Brothers Grimm series. Fantastic! I know that kids would eat them up because they are cute, scary and outside the average.

Gary, that is def. something I have in mind. Currently have plans to work with a friend in my area, but once we've cranked some work out, I would love to do a project with you! Maybe we can email ideas back and forth, story lines, rhymes, imagery and such.
