Bring Your Own is a nomadic storytelling series that takes place in living rooms, backyards and other intimate spaces within the community. Each month, seven storytellers have 7 minutes to respond to a theme. BYO airs on "All Things New Orleans" and is a biweekly podcast on WWNO.org.

This story was told live on September 17th in the Bayou St. John neighborhood and later produced by Karen Gardner. The theme of the evening was “Worth The Wait?” Here, storyteller Lee Rubin takes a trip of the mind and befriends a rabbit with a bad rap.
