most important thing in my life is definitely my toy bunny. It sits on
the end of my bed during the day, and at night, it lies beside me. I
sometimes imagine that it is watching everything I do. Many people are
quite surprised when I tell them that my bunny has never been named.
It's name has just remained and will always remain as "Bunny." Neither
he nor she, just Bunny!
My favorite feature on bunny's body is the eyes. Although they are
not made of glass or any other hard material, they still appear very
clear. They stand out on the pink body like shining sapphires against
black paper. On the side of its body there is a soft button, which
isn't very noticeable because it has faded. When it is pressed, a sweet
lullaby can be heard. This was a great tool for getting me to sleep
when I was younger.
There is quite a story behind my bunny. It first came into my life
when my gran gave it to me at birth. I was very ill and had to go into
an incubator, so I could not hold or cuddle the bunny. Bunny was placed
in a see-through plastic bag at the end of my incubator. Then it was
tied to the trolley underneath. The reason for putting it in a bag was
so that it didn't bring any infections into the ward.
My bunny has also traveled a very long distance. I carried it in my
hand luggage all the way from Aberdeen, Scotland, to Anchorage, Alaska!
Bunny is now 13 years old, like me. My special bunny.
