John

Filed under: Family, My Life — happychick @ 6.38p06

Everybody get comfortable, for I have a story. Now, the other day I created another page on my blog, About Me and My Blog (mainly me). Looking back, it has a lot of generally uninteresting crap about yours truly, but what can you do. So, my mate Jon, whom I posted about the other day, well he commented on this. You'll have to read it to see…

Ok, so I thought I'd let you know the story behind my teddy, and where he got his name. He is, of course, a boy. Or a male, or whatever. His name is John. John stands about 30cm high, wears a black and yellow jacket, and a hard-hat, as he is a fireman. (coincidentally no pants- bloody porno-loving teddy manufacturers!). John is the bear that sits on my bed.

Ok, so when I was 9, my Dad died. At his funeral (a rather depressing time, I might add), a man came up to me, and introduced himself. I do not remember his name, though I do wish I could tell him of the comfort his gift has brought me all these years later. His gift, of course, was a teddy bear. With a hard hat. He was a fireman, as was my Dad. (See the pattern here, guys?). My Dad's name was John. And, in a rare moment of symbolism, I named my bear that too.

Sitting here, now, looking at this bear, I realize how much solace it has had for me, and how much I would physically DIE if anything were to happen to him. 🙂

  5. Why’s that? Oh, and before you give me the “I’m really sorry, I never would have joked about it” thing, I thought it would be hot too. 🙂
