Sir Ted of the Bed



He is nearly bald, has an eye with a tendency to play home and away and his innards make a bid for freedom every now and again. He smells a bit as he and the washing machine don't get on - he would never survive the spin cycle.

He is Ted.

Sir Ted of the Bed.

He has outlasted all my bed partners (all?)  and doesn't mind at all about my choices in scary bedtime wear. He doesn't mind the crumbs, sharing with the cat or ending up under the bed because I changed the duvet and forgot about him.

He is my friend, my confidant, my hankerchief when none are to hand. He has kept the monsters at bay since 1963.

Simply, I love him.

Don't tell me you two haven't still got yer teddies?
Where are they? Did you dump them in favour of a new duvet/partner/blow-up doll?
How cruel.

Well, on this side of the pond, people expect boys to outgrow their bears. Sady, it may not be getting better.

(But, I know for a fact, my mama has my mole pillow stashed away. It reminds her of her "baby boy")

You had me at "Scary bedtime wear".

Don't tell me you haven't got some scary bedtime kit, Bullets, I can see the coffee stains and holey bits on those jim jams!

Jim jams? I prefer bare-beamed and buck-naked.

I know quite a few people, Mac, (men as well) who have a teddy lurkin in their boudoir!


Pure sauce, Bullets, pure sauce!

Amen to the Teddy Bears.

Excellent post, Miss Minx. Mine got lost along the way in my late teens, but I still love him and he's always in my heart.

XOXO

I really can't handle how sad I am over him dying. On the bright side, I can always drown my sorrows in fan fiction.

Also, I just read this article in Wired magazine & this quote made me happy.

'Harry Potter revealed a mass audience for fantasy that nobody was aware of, not even the people who were part of it. We were legion, and we didn’t even know it. Dostoevsky once said, “We all crawled out from under Gogol’s ‘Overcoat,’” and it’s just as true to say that we all crawled out from under Harry’s cloak of invisibility. He made being a fantasy nerd cool. Or, no, that’s not quite right. We didn’t change. The world changed around us: Harry Potter made everyone a little bit uncool.'

A teddy bear is one toy I will never outgrow :)
Very nice post, Kate.
