Sorrow and Joy

In a few hours, Augusta will be having a D&C after a missed miscarriage, and my heart is breaking for her. Those of us who have crossed to the Other Side certainly need no reminder of how damn lucky we are, yet this cruel universe sends 'em anyway. Far too often. To all of you who have been through this experience she will have, I am so, so sorry.

It might seem unkind to juxtapose that thought with the following, but after all, this is why we keep striving in the face of indescribable heartbreak:

Mr. Bunny, entering the bedroom at about 3 am with a freshly changed Bun Bun: The GRUNT-O-MATIC 3000! It grunts! It squeaks! It spits up! And when you've had it for about thirteen years, it hates you!

Me: Um...why...would...anyone WANT a Grunt-O-Matic 3000?

Mr. Bunny: Because! When you've had it for about six weeks, it smiles!

Me: *heart melts*

If you've got a Grunt-O-Matic 3000 of your own, give it a special kiss. If yours is still on order, I pray that it will ship soon.


  1. Thank you for keeping me in your thoughts, Bunny. It means a lot to me. I love the vignette of you, Mr. Bunny and your GRUNT-O-MATIC 3000. It's bringing a smile to my day.

  2. Such a sweet post - I'm in tears...

  3. You and Mr. Bunny and your GOM3k make me smile. Thank you. :)

  4. These are sweet ass updates. I owe you a long opinion on BFB. I will catch up over the weekend. I like the idea of getting my own gom3k at so
    E point. At present, we have received the invoice for shipping, but no actual ship date. :)

  5. Sweet post Bunny. My heart aches for Augusta too. I want to punch the universe sometimes but then I read about the gruntomatic and I realise the universe does good too.

  6. Ahhhhh.... The gastro-colic reflex so amazingly gross! Soon she'll make cute little faces while she is pooping in your lap.

  7. I just snuggled our Grunt-O-Matic 3000 in light of what's happened to dear Augusta.

    I love that you post the good, the bad and the ugly, Bunny. And often in the same post!

    Never change!
