Fear... distractions.... the efforts of a self-employed writer to pay the mortgage.... all that jazz.

Using Mainly Spoons....

Late at night, in nextdoor's rabbit hutch, the white rabbit is prodding the brown rabbit to wake up. "Listen!" says white rabbit, eyes wide. "I've got it!"
"When they put in the wire foundations beneath the hutch, they didn't do the bit by the hutch doorway, did they?"
"Eh?" (Brown rabbit never quite knows which end is tail and which is nose, let alone remembering stuff like dinnertime or wire locations.)
"No. They must have thought we wouldn't be able to dig there." White rabbit pauses, rubbing his pink nose. "That's our way out!"
Brown rabbit looks sleepy.
"Using mainly spoons, we will dig our way down... under... and out... to freedom!"
Brown rabbit takes the spoon White Rabbit hands to him. They set to work.

Next morning, nextdoor neighbour arrives to feed rabbits. But they're nowhere to be seen...

    So rabbits are cleverer than I previously thought.
