The "Dollies" love stories and asked me to post "Theo's" Christmas story from December 2012 again. So, here it is for the "Dollies."
As I was walking the aisles of BJ's I could hear someone's name being called and, funny thing, it sounded like mine. Someone was calling "Linda." For sure they couldn't have meant me. After all I didn't know anyone at BJ's other than hubby and he was in another aisle. So, I looked around, but there was no one here but me. Odd. So, I kept walking.
The closer I got to the end of the aisle the louder the name calling got. Someone was definitely calling for "Linda." I heard, "Over here, Linda. Look over here." I didn't see anything. Just a BIG white box.
Someone said, "I'm in here, Linda. Look in here." So, foolishly I did. Sitting inside the BIG white box was a HUGE (and I do mean HUGE) white teddy bear.
"Well, hello there," I said.
"Hello, Linda. I'm T.T.D. which stands for Theodore Teddy Bear. Theo for short."
I said, "Nice to meet you Theo. What are you doing in there and why are you calling my name?"
'Well," he said, "I've been waiting a long time for you. Waiting for you to take me home."
"Home to my house," I replied.
"Well, yes," he replied, "that is home after all isn't it?"
"Oh, Theo. I would LOVE to take you home with me. You're so adorable, so BIG, and so CUDDLY. Who could resist you? Certainly not me. Plus, you'd be perfect for my dining room North Pole Christmas scene. But...."
"Well," Theo said, "What's the problem?"
