Sorry for how long it is.
Hey everyone my mom bought me shellie may a Disney bear from Japan. I was crazy happy. The "Thing" to do with her is like flat Stanley you take her or the boy bear Duffy and take pictures of them doing human stuff.There is a whole website of just pics of people with their bears posing them in public.Most people carry their bears in bags or hold them.Mind you these are "normal" adults.ive been trying to let my little side out more in public.i go to the mall once a week with "normal"friends.i like to bring shellie may along and hold her while she is dressed up and take some pics.They think i'm nuts weird and a giant kid in a bad way.On Wednesday I dressed me and shellie up in matching outfits and took pics and my friends really thought i hit the deep end.My friends are starting to say they wont hangout with me if i bring her.Today my mom sat me down and explained that people think im a kook and weirdo when I bring a stuffed teddy around because i'm 21 and I need to stop bringing her in public.she threatened to let my dad cut her up.My dad was embarrassed when I took her everywhere with me on a Disney cruise. I don't know what to do and I have no little friends who would understand.Attachment 17124
