Hi ho. Sebastian here. I waited. Sometimes I waited alone.
Sometimes I waited with a friend.
We were very patient. What were we waiting for you ask? We heard it was supposed to snow! We love it when it snows. Not just a little bit but enough to cover everything in white. Here where I live, snow is an excuse to make a grand ol’ day of having fun.
Now waiting for snow requires a lot of patience. And sometimes you have to wait a very long time. I knew that it might take a while for the snow to show up because that is how snow is. If it just drops from the sky without any warning, everyone goes scrambling around trying to make sure everything gets taken care of properly. But if it takes its time arriving, there is the fun of anticipation. Waiting can be very, very worthwhile.
It wasn’t my idea, but when I found out about The Plan, I didn’t have any objections. No, I thought The Plan was a really good one so I encouraged those with driver’s licenses to follow through with The Plan which included bringing home some Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Since it is nearly February, I was happy to see that they modified their usual selection to include these festive ones.
It did snow – not quite as much as the weatherman said it might - but snow is snow!
Now being a bear doesn’t mean I actually get out in it. No, I’m pretty much a ‘look at it from the window’ kind of guy. First of all, The Plan meant that someone had to guard the doughnuts from the Abominable Snowman while they played in the snow.
That’s what I told them anyway. Secondly, I didn’t have any snow boots and everyone knows that a bear without snow boots is just asking for cold paws. You just can’t eat a Krispy Kreme doughnut with cold paws. Let’s keep our priorities straight.
Now The Tophinator is new at this sort of thing so he got fooled into going outside. What a nut! I could have told him it was cold but he had to find out for himself. I think he thought if he ran fast enough he could keep his paws off the ground but that gravity concept hasn’t sunk in yet. It was fun being inside watching from the window with a cup of hot cocoa in one paw and an X shaped doughnut in the other.
Oh, I also commandeered the remote control to the TV. Everyone knows if you have the remote, you get to choose the shows and I decided to have a Little Bear marathon. Captain Picard will have to “make it so” another day.
