Today my mom gave me my beary own teddy bear. I never had a teddy bear before.
“Wow!” I said. “This is so neat. I will name him Ted.” I gave Ted a little bear hug.
I was beary excited about my new teddy bear so I went to show Uncle Tibbs.
“Uncle Tibbs,” I said, “Look at my new teddy bear.”
“Oh that’s very nice, Ajdin.” Uncle Tibbs patted Ted gently.
“I think everyone needs a teddy bear, Uncle Tibbs. I mean teddy bears make great friends and they are beary good at giving bear hugs and –” I paused. “But Uncle Tibbs… what about you? You don’t have a teddy bear!”
“Hmmm…” Uncle Tibbs scratched his head.
“Uncle Tibbs,” I said, “this won’t do. We really must get you a teddy bear also.”
“Actually Ajdin, I already have one,” he said.
“You do?” I asked. “You never told me. What does he look like?”
“Well, he’s brown, and furry, and about your height,” Uncle Tibbs explained.
“And what is he like?” I asked.
“Well, he loves honey and salmon, and he likes going on adventures, and he’s a beary loyal friend,” Uncle Tibbs said.
“Uncle Tibbs, I would like to meet him if that’s okay?” I said.
“Ajdin,” Uncle Tibbs continued, “don’t you know? My teddy bear is… YOU!”
