>>> rabbit roast protocol

posted August 8, 2008

these rules must be read by all attendees to the rabbit roast. 

important to be legal and respectful and good little citizens at a perfect tiny agrarian pageant. 
think of our partner and host as a kindly sleeping aunty whose jam pot you’re minding. 
She spent the whole morning bent over collecting raspberries.
Careful not to make a caramel on the bottom of the pan, or she’ll awake fuming- 
“these young people, no respect for jam-making, no respect for raspberries”
Stir carefully then, young swain. And read the rules of the Farm before signing up to Glynwood.
