Growing up I lived down the street from a girl my age named Holly. Holly was sort of spoiled and bratty but she had a lot of good toys. Including a Barbie Townhome. Also, her mom used to let us snack on microwavable cheese-filled hotdogs whenever we wanted. So, we were friends. Sort of.
One day when we were about 6 years old we were watching cartoons over at her house. Bugs Bunny came on. "Bugs Bunny is my favorite! I LOVE Buys Bunny!", Holly shouted.
"Yes," I agreed, "Except his name is Bigs Bunny. BIGS."
"No, it's NOT!"
"Yes, it is. That's his name. Because he's big. A big bunny." (said with complete conviction)
"NO! HIS NAME IS BUGS BUNNY! YOU DUMMY!"
"NUH UH! YOU'RE THE DUMMY! IT'S BIGS!"
I'm not sure who shoved who first but we ended up scrapping and I had to go home. I was tearfully telling my mom about the fight:
"And....sniff....Holly said, she kept saying he was...sniff...BUGS Bunny, not BIGS."
"Um, honey? It is Bugs Bunny. Holly is right."
Andrew is a big cartoon fan and received a Warner Bros classic collection as a Christmas gift from his parents. We were watching it the other night when I remembered the "Bigs/Bugs" fight.
22 years later and I'm still embarrassed, just a little bit.
