You Call That A Privilege

Several weeks ago, Mom and I went out to dinner at the local Chinese buffet and started a conversation on things that we think are a privilege to enjoy.

A few of them are listed below:

  • Eating at a buffet
  • Living in America
  • Sweet tea
  • Living in the Mountains
  • Chocolate chip cookies
  • Hot water
  • Clean restrooms
  • Ice cream
  • Holding a dead rabbit
  • Uh, what’d you say?
  • It was a privilege to hold the rabbit.

Ok, Mom, I think we have a problem.

“Oh, you mean I’ve never told you that story about my dad,” Mom said.

“No, you haven’t. I think I would remember that.”

“Well, I was really young–not yet in first grade and went Daddy killed a rabbit, it was a privilege for us kids to hold the top of the rabbit while he gutted it,” said Mom.

“You don’t say,” I replied, trying not to gag in between bites of my chop suey and Mongolian Beef.

“Yep. I think six or seven of us kids were around at that age and we took turns holding the rabbit. I’ve always had a sensitive stomach, you know?”

“Really? I’m not feeling so good myself,” I said.

“Anyway,” she continued digging into a baked oyster, “it was my turn and Daddy held the rabbit up for me to grab. Now, I didn’t want to miss my turn, so I closed my eyes and grabbed the rabbit.”

“What happened?” I asked.

“I don’t remember,” Mom said. “I passed out.”


“Where are you going?” she asked as I got up from the table.

“I don’t know, but I hope it has a clean restroom.”

  1. Thanks for reading, Pam! Sometimes you can’t make stuff up,you just have to tell the truth.

  2. Thanks for another informative site. Where else could I get that kind of information written in such an ideal way? I have a project that I am just now working on, and I have been on the look out for such information.

  3. Can I just say what a aid to search out someone who really knows what theyre talking about on the internet. You positively know tips on how to deliver an issue to gentle and make it important. More individuals have to learn this and understand this aspect of the story. I cant believe youre no more standard because you undoubtedly have the gift.
