TOPIC: Teddy Bears …
Posted: 9/9/2014, 4:54 a.m. EDT
So I really like teddy bears, but I always seem to rip them apart.
My shrink tells me it's a "dog biting' thing and seems to think I'll get
over it. I don't know what it is really, but whenever I start
playing with "teddy" eventually my eyes glaze over and I end up ripping
it limb from limb. The next thing I know there's teddy bear parts
strewn all over the living room. I'm hoping things will get better
with additional professional counseling.
Momma Bear ...
Baby Bear goes downstairs and sits in his small chair at the big table
he looks into his small bowl. It is empty. "Who's been eating my
porridge?" he squeaks.
Papa Bear arrives at the big table and sits in his big chair. He looks
into his big bowl, and it is also empty. "Who's been eating my
Porridge?" he roars.
Momma Bear puts her head through the serving hatch from the kitchen and
yells, "For God's sake, how many times do we have to go through this?
It was Momma Bear who got up first, it was Momma Bear who woke everyone
in the house, it was Momma Bear who made the coffee, it was Momma Bear
who unloaded the dishwasher from last night, and put everything away, it
was Momma Bear who went out in the cold early morning air to fetch the
newspaper, it was Momma Bear who set the table, it was Momma Bear who
put the rodent cat out, cleaned the litter box, and filled the cat's
water and food dish, and, now that you've decided to drag your sorry
bear-butts downstairs, and grace Momma Bear's kitchen with your grumpy
presence.....listen good, cause I'm only going to say this one more time
"I HAVEN'T MADE THE DAMN PORRIDGE YET!!!"
... Teddy Bears...
Teddy bears, though primarily marketed as plush toys for children, are
collected by adults too
People who collect these stuffed toys are referred to as "arctophiles,"
from the Greek root words for "bear" and "lover"
