Picky picking

We were shopping at Auchan for some things. There is a pet-shop located in the shopping center of this particular Auchan. We often stop and watch the fish and bunnies on the way out to the parking lot. The kids adore the animals.

Sweet Bear and Petite Clown were laughing and pointing at the rabbits which were pressing their twitching noses against the glass. Suddenly, Sweet Bear pointed to a white and black bunny and exclaimed, “I pick that one to eat!”

We told her that these rabbits weren’t for eating. They were for petting. She didn’t budge. “I want to eat that one!”, she said crossly.

Kids. You really never ever know what they will come up with next.

Parenting is an adventure.


In France, rabbit meat is found in the meat section right along with horse. I have not eaten horse meat but did have rabbit while staying in the hospital after Boy Blue was born. You can read about my reaction here.

    Oh, that is too funny LOL! All of my children are carnivores, but look out if you point to a live animal and talk about eating it. They will go all animals rights activist on you. I keep asking them where they think the meat they eat comes from. They don’t want to think about it LOL.

    In France the meat section at your local grocery doesn’t hide what the meat is. I have seen whole pigs heads ready to be purchased for dinner. The farm is not so far from the grocery here.

    I love diving. Among the animals you meet when diving, octopuses are the most lovely ones. They behave just like cats. The first time they served me roasted octopus in Greece, I had a sigh… but it was so yummy!
    About horse meat, it has been a taboo for centuries in France. Horse meat was eaten only in lower classes of the society and, till today, sold only in distinct shops called “Boucheries chevalines”. Some 30 years ago, government allowed regular “boucheries” and meat sections in supermarkets to sell horse meat.
