Word Nerd: April


No fooling, April is a great month for word possibilities, with obvious choices being spring and Easter.

One way I cope with “screen scream,” the way my brain is bursting after intently dealing with webinars, on-line schooling needs, e-mail catch up, and so forth, is to either read a book or plug into a PBS Nature episode.

Rabbits can swim!

When I saw the new Nature episode title: Remarkable Rabbits, I couldn’t resist. It was all about rabbits and hares. There is a difference, and it even went into the expression “crazy as a March hare” or at least provided a plausible explanation. As complete as the show appeared to be, it did not explain why we say “bunny” when referring to rabbits.

Aha, my sources at Dictionary.com explain it quite well: bunny epiphany.

There is even enlightenment about “coney” and why the only coney in use is associated with Coney Island.

Doubt rabbits or bunnies are to be found hare.

I hope you will hop around to the links provided and discover that rabbits are truly remarkable.

This wascally wabbit knows how remarkable he is…
