Chance connection with a cotton-tail

Driving home from work today, I turned into my neighborhood just as the school bus was letting kids out.  One of the students crossed the road, wearing a pair of rabbit ears I’m assuming were made in class earlier in the day:

While the unexpected head gear was enough to make me smile, what was even better was that the kid wearing the ears was a 15-year-old African American boy who was also sporting baggy jeans, a front-zip sweatshirt, and sneakers.

As I drove by, I smiled at the contrast.  The boy saw me, nodded his head in a knowing way, and smiled back.

Yeah, he knows.  And that makes it even more awesome.  🙂

    Awesome – I love it when a guy is man enough to sport little-girl bunny ears! That is so cool!

      And I especially love it that he was a teenager, who just kinda doesn’t seem to care if he’s “silly” – he’s having a good time (in a very innocent way); and I *adore* that.
