As the only bear awake at the moment, I’ve decided to share with you my sad, sad teddy tale. It all started when I was left behind when they went to Florida. They said it was accidental. I’ll never know for sure.
While they were gone, I wondered what kinds of things I was missing.
I knew for certain that they would see Cinderella’s castle. I’m sure it was magical.
I also heard that there is an Electrical Light Parade at night and I can just imagine there might have been a fierce dragon snorting smoke. That would have been exciting!
Maybe there was a choo-choo train, too. If I had been there, I would have been the conductor. Alas, I was here – all by my lonesome self. Okay, so that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but this is supposed to be a sad, sad tale.
The more I thought about the castle, the more sadder I got. Wouldn’t it have been terrific to see it all lit up at night?
Maybe, if they had remembered to take me along, I could have talked them into buying me a balloon that would glow in the dark. Of course, I might have flown right up into the night sky, but let’s not dwell on that. It’s quite beside the point.
Oh, and the fireworks. I missed the fireworks over the castle. Let me tell you I was having a big pity party. With a party you have to have guests, some honey, a few cookies, some chips and loud music right?
Before I could get the place cleaned up properly, they came home.
I was so surprised when they presented me with some Mickey Mouse ears in just my size. Seeing as how I felt a little sick from eating too many cookies, the gift made me feel a little better if not a bit guilty.
They told me all about meeting Duffy and I could hardly believe there was a teddy bear that big in the whole wide world.
To make it even better, they surprised me with my very own Duffy bear in just my size. I was starting to feel bad about the mess I had created while they were gone.
But just between you and me and Duffy, getting left behind worked out okay. And you know what? Duffy and I are going to share my new mouse ears! How cool is that?
