Hello again. Sebastian here. Finally, it’s my turn at this blog thing again. Sometimes it seems like it takes for-ev-er when I have to wait.
I have some news to share. It’s the sort of story that kind of goes wiggly and you might not be able to follow it but I’ll try to make it easy for you.
When I have been out with other bear people and then again at Disney, I noticed that a lot of them had pins. Not pens like you write with although they probably had those too, but pins like you wear on your collar or lapel.
I know you’ll forgive my namedropping, but my friends down at Disney – Duffy, Cinderella, Donald, Mickey and so on, they all have pins. They are so colorful and it got me to thinking.
I got to thinking I should have a pin because well, because, I should. So I approached you-know-who with this idea and she surprised me. No, she shocked me actually by saying, yes; she had been thinking that it would be a good idea.
At that point, it occurred to me that perhaps she had been thinking way too long. Like, way way too long. Over thinking it. She does that occasionally.
So, I asked, “What’s the hold up? These things don’t just magically appear. You have to DO something.”
“Yes, I know. I know. I know.”
So I said to her, “Well then, go and DO it!”
And then she said, “There are steps to it. You can’t just say to someone “Make me a pin.” And then, Poof! You’re a pin. There’s finding just the right person to carry it out, then finding an artist and describing exactly what we want. Then you have to wait for them to arrive and hope they are right. Then there should be some way to explain them. Like a card or something.”
To tell you the truth, I began to lose a little hope. It all sounded so complicated, but since I can feign ignorance very easily, I said again, “Just go and DO it!”
I was very surprised when she did. I mean she really did. She did it. She did all those things – although finding the artist wasn’t very hard as I have my own personal portrait artist just a few hours down the road – or up the road. I can never remember which it is.
So, here they are – my pins. My very own pins.
I am so excited! Do you think it looks like me? I couldn’t decide if I should wear my glasses or not. In the end, I decided they added to my allure, don’t you think? The pins aren’t huge nor are they tiny – they are just right at one inch across.
I think the plan is to make them available for purchase. I am going to encourage her to put them on
my her teddy bear website.
Then if I see someone on the street wearing one, we can do a thumbs up kind of thing. Like a secret club or something. Although it might have to be paws up since the thumb thing still has me baffled.
