Today something beary interesting happened.
There was a knock at the door and then a loud thud. When I opened the door, I saw a large box.
The box had this funny label on it. I also noticed there was an airhole on the box. An airhole? Could something be inside? I put my ear to the box and listened – I heard something moving around!
Then, in a booming voice, the box said, “LET ME OUT!!” I jumped back in surprise. I was both curious and scared. I cut the box carefully with scissors and opened it. Inside…was a bear. A beary beary beary LARGE bear.
“Finally!” the bear said, stretching his long arms. I had never seen such a big bear in my entire life – only in movies. He crawled out of the box and looked around. Then he looked at me.
“Well, you’re a small little bear,” he said.
“I may be small but I have a big heart!” I said. He laughed a hearty laugh. I felt the ground shake.
“Yes, indeed. I can tell you certainly have a lot of spunk. Thank you for letting me out of that box. My name is Mr. Tibbs. You can also call me Uncle Tibbs. He extended his large paw for a pawshake.
“My name is Ajdin. It is nice to meet you. But I must ask, where do you come from and how did you get here?”
“Ah Ajdin, that is a very good question. I have traveled all over the world. I have been to many countries. My most recent trip was to China, then I spent some time in Vermont. And now… I am here.”
“You must be very tired, Mr. Tibbs.”
“Yes, I am,” he said, yawning.
“In that case, here is a pillow and blanket. You can take a nap on the couch,” I told him. In no time, Mr. Tibbs fell asleep.
Who exactly is Mr. Tibbs? What was China like? Do bears just magically appear at the doorstep in America? I have so many questions to ask Mr. Tibbs after he wakes up.
What a cool surprise to get in the mail. My roommates only get bills in the mail.
I am so glad that Mr. Tibbs is resting after a long trip. It's a good idea to let him use a blanket to stay warm. I hope you two will have some good adventures together.
Are you going to take him to McDonald's for a filet-o-fish with extra honey to welcome him to your house?
That is a good idea. I want to be a good host. I don't know how long he will stay here.
Wow!!! That is a super large bear! Can't wait to hear what he has to say about China!!
Yes, he is beary big! The biggest bear I've ever met.
Wow, what a wonderful surprise. We're sure you'll give Mr. Tibbs a wonderful welcome. We're looking forward to hearing more about him!
An interesting surprise indeed!
It's a good thing he speaks English and not Chinese!
I wonder if he speaks other languages…
