If You Can’t Beat the Rabbit, Join the Rabbit

January 9, 2012 § 15 Comments

Funny enough, my sister the Rabbit has had a baby for every novel I’ve published, wrenching attention away from its rightful owner, me.

ME:  Mom, House of Gentle Men made the LA Times best seller list!

RABBIT:  Oh, I just felt a kick!

(Years later)

ME:  Mom, I just got a two-book deal with Putnam.

MOM:  Could you move away from the table? Your barren womb is blocking my view of your sister’s sonogram.

(Years later)

RABBIT:  Oh I’m sorry my water broke on your first edition copy of Prince of Lost Places.

ME:  No you are not.

(Years later)

ME:  Hey I just sold Blue As-

MOM:  YOUR SISTER JUST SENT THE CUTEST VIDEO OF YOUNG TRAVIS FLYING!!!!

Recently, her husband got a vasectomy, but as long as the milkman is still fertile as Secretariat, I’m not taking any chances.

The Rabbit and I have joined forces, and we are writing a historical novel together.

History is her wheelhutch. And she’s a remarkably good storyteller. Hand in paw, together we face 2012 as tenuous allies.

The Mayans predicted this.
