I told them not to follow.
I told them it wasn’t actually a white rabbit, it was Jack Kork wearing white rabbit ears. That it was a joke.
But did they listen? Ooooooh no. Off they ran, the scamps, gleefully shouting that they were “following the white rabbit!”
So I suppose there’s nothing to do but go fetch them. I wander out onto the patio to see where they got to, but I don’t see them anywhere.
That’s odd. Usually I can at least hear them giggling when they hide.
Frowning, I start moving pots & looking in plants, calling for them.
Nothing, not a peep!
But then suddenly I see a flash of white…
…I look over at it, and find…
Jack Kork’s white rabbit ears hat!
Oh dear. They found a portal.
Well, I told them to be careful; it’s that time of year, and there’s no telling what kind of crazy portals might open up & lure them in. Well, they’ll have to learn the hard way, I suppose.
I take the little hat with me while I go back inside to make some tea.
I’m about to pour the water into my cup when I hear some faint music…I set the kettle down and investigate. Might be the Kork-Knees coming back.
I take a step, and WHOOSH! I’m sliding down…a hole? But I didn’t see one!
Then I tumble out…somewhere…tumble once in a somersault, then start sliding fast down a hill. When I come to a stop, I’m in a strange room, and I hear all kinds of high-pitched laughter and giggling. I’ve found the Kork-Knees, that’s for sure.
I sit up & look around. Kallie Kork sees me. “Wasn’t that fun?!” she gushes.
“Well…um…sure…” I know from experience that it’s best to just agree that everything is fun. “What are you all doing?”
She giggles, a bit…madly. “Why, we’re having TEA!”
I then notice that there’s a table laden with tea things…and confetti…and some kind of nibble…
…and the Kork-Knees.
They are excited to have lots of different tea…oh heck, they’re just always excited to have a party!
And then, suddenly…
What’s this?! How did my kitty Bast get here, too? She must have followed me down the hole!
Oh hang on, I think I know why…
…one of the teas is peppermint…
And she likes peppermint.
The Kork-Knees are laughing like mad.
I decide to look around, and see treats…
I ask the Kork-Knees where I should start.
“TEA!” They yell, bouncing up and down.
Tea it is!
As I happily sip my teas – all three are delicious, of course – I ask the Kork-Knees what the stack of unicorn cards is all about.
They don’t know, but say we must find out. So I gingerly turn one over…
Awwwwww! Hey Korks, you’re my besties!
They all giggle & ooooh and aaaaaah.
I turn over another one:
Um…I didn’t ask a question…
However, Mr Crazy Scamp Jack Kork giggles even more madly than usual & scampers off, the others following him…
And the next thing I know, they all dive into a bowl of confetti!
Even I’m chuckling at this point.
“What are you doing?” I ask, laughing at their silliness.
“Bazinga!” They shout.
“Wait…what? Are you quoting Big Bang Theory at me?!”
Laughing uproariously, they all yell, “Bazinga!” and dive into the confetti again!
Suddenly I remember…I know what they’re doing!
So now I’m laughing and laughing along with them. Finally they crawl out of the confetti, giggling and trying to catch their breath.
“Ok all that made me hungry…let’s eat the goodies!” They agree!
Oy, I’m full now!
And the Kork-Knees are napping…well, three of them are…Jack Kork is still raring to go…
I think it’s time to call it a day! I’m going to gather up the (sleepy) scamps and hopefully find the portal quickly and head back home. Oh…I slid down a hole to get here…I hope I don’t have to climb up that hole somehow to get back home…?
I hear Jack Kork giggling to himself. I’m sure he knows how to find the portal to a fast trip home.
We hope you had fun at the party! And to say thanks for stopping by, here’s a little giftie…the “Eat” and “Drink” printable! (It’s a design I made & usually sell in my shop, so please no commercial use…personal use only! :) ) You just print it out onto one regular size sheet then cut each one out; each is 5″x7″. :)[Download not found]
Once I make my way back home, I’m going to go visiting all the other parties! See you all there!
