ON A RABBIT JAG

Because we're on a rabbit jag , we've selected this glass figurine to illustrate a fairly common, but unfortunate, French expression:  poser un lapin.  In every day parlance it means to stand somebody up, that is to say to not respect an appointment and to do so without informing the person with whom one has the rendez-vous.

Vocabulary
poser:  to put, to put something down, to land; to apply; to ask
un lapin:  a rabbit
d├ęcommander:  to cancel
