A subject that I know has been discussed loads on adisc in the past but I'm bored and I can't help not smiling at my new plushy friend
When I was in Orlando to meet the love of my life, I wanted to build a bear. So we went to Build A Bear Workshop and I got to pick out my new friend.
I couldn't help but take forever to pick out my new plushy but ended up picking a blue teddy with white stars all over. I hated seeing all the other teddies without their stuffing. It sort of made me feel sad.
So then I got him stuffed and was asked by the lady stuffing him who this was for. I don't know how red I went but I lied and said it was for my baby cousin. I got to give him a heart and even got to control the stuffing pedal
Then I got to make a certificate to name him. I ended up with Captain Stars. I got the certificate printed with me as the owner and even got him a Captain America outfit too.
It was embarrassing but I was so happy to take my new friend out of the store
So, does anyone here buy or own a bear from Build A Bear? Were you as embarrassed as I was?
