“Dinner!”

“You may have to yell a bit louder. I don’t think all the kids in town heard you mom.”

“Don’t be so sarcastic Peter.”

“Sorry. But you know how my brother is when he gets busy.”

“Good point. We better go check up on him.”

“Hi mom, Pete. What’s up?”

“I should ask you but I’m not sure I want to know. What’s up with me is that dinner is ready. Didn’t you hear me” According to your brother, Farmer Brown heard me and he lives on the other side of town.”

“Sorry, I had my headphones on so I could concentrate on my latest project. Want to hear about it?”

“Maybe after supper you can summarize it for us. A full explanation from you takes hours and even then I usually don’t understand.”

“Ok. I’ll just show you the results when I’m done.”

“Mom, why did you name my brother Itza?”

“Originally I just thought it was interesting, and different. I now realize how good my choice was.”

“Why do you say that?”

“You have to admit Peter that Itza wonder why he hasn’t blown himself up out there in that lab of his.”

“True. I remember the eggs…”

“Shhh, don’t remind me.”

Meanwhile out at Itza’s lab.

“It worked!”

Itza ran home to have mom and Pete join him in the lab. He then handed a package of marshmallow bunnies to both his brother and mom.

“That’s Uncle Pete! How, and why did you make marshmallows out of him?”

“I took a picture of him and put it in my Picture-Drop machine. I can make picture dots from any picture. Then I mix the dots with my special fertilizer and some marshmallow powder. Using this green light they grow quickly. I’ll have enough for you Pete when you go out delivering.”

“Thanks Itza. What’s Easter without marshmallow bunnies. I’ll make sure every kid gets one, or my name isn’t Peter Cottontail.”
