This book lends itself to discussion with its ambiguous nature. While the common reading of the text is that the Rabbit has stolen the Bear's hat, and the Bear has eaten the Rabbit to take its hat back, none of these are stated outright. They are mentioned only in statements of denial, from which we may infer that they actually happen. Because these characters feel the need to deny actions even though no one has accused them of, they paint themselves suspiciously. The ambiguity this creates frames hypothetical discussion nicely. We can easily ask questions like, what if the Rabbit did not steal the hat?' and discuss what heated gloves might change if this were the case. If the hat simply fell and the Rabbit found it, did the Rabbit do anything wrong by taking the hat? On the other hand, assuming the Rabbit stole the Bear's hat, was it okay for the Rabbit to steal it? it should be noted that there is only ambiguity in the hat and the disappearance of the Rabbit. We know that the Rabbit lied about not having seen the hat because it was wearing the hat when talking to the Bear.

At that early point, my Trump-guy character was a blank slate, driven by vacant enthusiasm yet eager to know more. I expressed as much to Eugene. I marveled at the size of the auditorium and how I couldn't wait to see it filled, to hear the roar at full volume. I knew there had to be something to the guy if he was this popular and I couldn't wait to see it with my own eyes, a stone's throw away. I asked about Eugene, what he liked about Trump, what brought him here, why he stood in line so early to get these good seats.
I'd just been unreactively standing there the whole time but I couldn't even wear the costume anymore. The oath wasn't super-smooth in its execution for the rally -- Trump had people raise their right hand and repeat after him, then he'd go too fast or say things that were too long for people to really repeat accurately. You could see some subtle satisfaction on Trump's face as he did this ?-- ?nobody in the world has more contempt for Trump supporters leather gloves than Donald J. Trump himself.My phone died, and the only friends I recognized in the audience got fed up and left. And then I was left alone, more alone than I'd ever really felt before in my life, as deep as I could get in enemy territory and unable to express what I really felt or thought or else I'd get my ass kicked in spectacular fashion in front of a roaring crowd.
