So we had a rabbit we as a kid. In a moment of inspired creativity we named him Harvey
. He lived in a hutch in the back yard. He was cool, in that he mostly lived in there and ate. I like to think he was happy, but who can tell? Dogs at least wag their tails.
The weird thing is my dad, who hated and ignored pretty much every other cat or dog we had, loved that rabbit. I think he liked it because he just sat there and didn't require a lot of maintenance. He made sure Harvey was fed and cleaned. Also, the rabbit droppings made really good fertilizer for the tomato garden dad would plant every year.
Dad used to wander around the house late at night in a state that wasn't really sleepwalking but wasn't really awake. I remember coming home one night early from work (graveyard at the medical lab. This was during the time I was a college dropout
) at 3 am and seeing dad in the kitchen. The rule was avoid any kind of interaction while he wandered around and he would more or less ignore you. I saw him go under the kitchen sink and pull out the coffee can we kept the alfalfa rabbit food in. As I watched in disbelief (and, to be honest, a certain amount of hope to see something really funny) he poured a helping into a cereal bowl, sat down at the counter, and took a spoonful. Just before sticking it into his mouth he started awake, looked at the spoon, and without a word dumped the rabbit pellets back the can, put them back under the sink, and stumbled back to bed. To this day I have to wonder how much alfalfa he had eaten in his life.
I suppose I should be talking about A.D.D. of A.D.H.D, but to be honest I did another shirt like that and it really doesn't interest me much today. I tried to find something mixing A.D.D. and humor, but everything I have found is that lame, wholesome humor you would normally find on the Family Circus
. I guess people think A.D.D. is a serious medical condition deserving of sympathy rather than kids acting like kids and stressing out lousy parents. Oh, well. I did find this A.D.D. test
. Apparently the human brain is so simple and streamlined that it can be accurately diagnosed by answering 24 semi-vague questions. Science is awesome. I scored a 40, which is moderate, but to be honest there were a lot of questions that seem highly situational.
This is more interesting. I found a sereal killer test
to see if you could be a serial killer. It seems a little awkward but kind of interesting. I won't tell you my score on that in hopes of enhancing my mystery and "bad boy
