When I was a kid, I had a chocolate brown teddy bear. When I got a little older (maybe 6 or 7), my father decided it was time for teddy to go and threw him in the trash. I don't hold this against him because good old teddy was dirty, loosing his stuffing and his leg was hanging by a thread and was about to come off. In those days they didn't have teddy bear hospitals.
We'll, fast forward about 60 years. One day, while I was randomly browsing online, I happened to see a teddy bear on sale that looked just like what I remember the original teddy to look like... chocolate brown and just the right size. Needless to say, I made an impulsive buy (couldn't pass it up at the price), not knowing exactly what i was going to do with it. Oddly enough, I hugged him right out of the box.
I think I'll call him 'teddy'.
Is it o.k. for adults to have stuffed animals?
Do you have a teddy bear named 'teddy'?
