So I bought a hair brush.
The booth's curator walked over to me as I picked it up.
I knew this rabbit brush would go fast. Its fabulous.
I know. I replied. It reminds me of the horrible face Fiver made when he and the other rabbits were forced out of the meadow by man's tractors in the animated film version of Watership Down.
After an awkward moment of silence, I continued.
I can't stop looking at it so I think I should buy it.
I smiled, plunked down the cash and became the proud owner of a rabbit brush
After lunch I washed my hands so I could take my new rabbit brush out of the bag and look at it. As I turned it over, in the light of the cafe, I could see some etching. I mentioned this to my friend.
Michelle, there's some etching on the back of the handle.
What's it say? asked Michelle through the mastication of her veggie burger.
I need glasses. I anguished until my arms were as long as my eyes needed. Oh, wait. I can see. it says 'HARE BRUSH'.
Oh, hair brush, yea. said Michelle, still masticating.
Ohmigod. No. H-A-R-E brush - like the four-legged rabbit.
The Hare Brush. Now I get it.
