Enjoyed the arc big time. It's good to see that the guys aren't totally oblivious to their wives' odd habits. They just don't know and couldn't be expected to know what to make of it all yet.
Throw in Reece's flub and I believe they are probably now more certain than ever that there's more going on than the gals are telling.
I just wonder what the guys' response will be. Will they try to maybe keep an eye on the gals, maybe even follow them every once in a while, try to see if there is anything else odd that the girls seem to be doing or hiding, or just let it slide for now.

From this point forward, the guys are going to be a tad more observant of the ladies' activities. It may just be general curiosity at first, but it could grow into something more.
Reece's Freudian slip just confirmed their suspicions. No point pushing the issue now, but there will be more opportunities later.
I'm glad you liked the story. Even though it seems like just a throw away story, and I must admit, the first half was just for fun, it was important to show the guys are not just background characters with no thoughts, interests or motivations outside of being foils for the ladies.
Plus you got to take ego into this. The guys want to be able to protect their wives. But unbeknownst to them, their wives are quite capable of handling themselves. From their purely macho minds, what purpose would they serve in a relationship if they're not needed in that way?

I didn't really intend for Peter to come off as an idiot when I first introduced him. His bad clothing decisions is just a character quirk, and sometimes things such as that are just exaggerated for comic effect.
Peter Rabbit... yeah. Be grateful I didn't name Ally Flopsy or Mopsy.
The only other "pun" I had with a character name was Sheila's. She's a kangaroo and "Sheila" is Australian slang for a woman.
Personally, I just think female rabbit furries look cool in Top Hats. That it's an obvious magic pun makes it better.
