Dearest Easter Bunny,
It is with great regret and sadness that I write this letter to you today as I know I have crushed your spirit and I'm willing to face the fact that you may never again hop with that extra bounce after our encounter today. I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me (after all, isn't that what Easter is really all about - the forgiveness of sins?) The truth is - I love to talk about "Bunny", wave to "Bunny", look at pictures of "Bunny" and I even love to twirl when the "Bunny Song" comes on but for some reason, to see you SO large and up close and standing on two feet kind of freaked me out a little and I just couldn't bear the thought of sitting next to you all by myself. I know I made quite the scene today in the mall when we met and I realize how much it must have hurt your feelings when I put the death-grip hold on my mom and yelled over and over and over "No! No bunny"! But, despite what you think I did get all dressed up cute JUST for you and really thought we would be the best of friends! I guess I realized that I'm just not quite ready to make that step yet... but maybe next year Big Guy! Oh, and I hope you don't mind that I made my mom sit with us for our picture - luckily she showered today or the picture could have been a REAL disaster! And I'm really hoping you heard me AS SOON as we walked away from you say "Sorry Bunny, Bye Bye". I really didn't want to hurt your feelings today and I really hope you know how sorry I am. Hey, you should at least look on the bright side - I do like you better than that fat guy with the long beard and red suit...
Here's hoping you will still fill my Easter Basket full of goodies,
