This here is one of my best friends, Bob T. Bear, esq. He's from England, he's crazy about underwear of all kinds but especially blue ones (he calls them pants), and he's a spy bear. If you go over to meet him, just don't ask him who he is spying for, because, if in a moment of weakness he tells you, then he'll have to kill you. And he knows karate. Seriously.
Bob knows that I'm totally into spy stuff, and I like bears, and I like goobers, so just before Christmas Stella & I received this package from Bob.
Seeing as how I am the expert package-opener of the family, I commenced with the opening.
I work through it in stages. Now that it's open I gently coax the contents from inside the package to come out.
There was a mini package inside the big one.
After checking for booby traps (See? I read spy novels.) We opened it up.
Stella wanted to get in on at least some of the package-opening (she's still in training).
Look what was inside!!! It's a little bear, with a tag on him that said he's a Mini Goober!
I can tell from Bob's descriptions of spy bears, that this Mini Goob is definitely a spy! He has 1 ear that faces forward, and 1 ear that faces backward. (That's the mark of the spy bear.) On Bob's blog you can find all kinds of information for the bear novice like how to tell your bear is real, and stuff like that.
BOB!! Thank you for the Mini Goober Spy! He is a FABULOUS addition to our family! We are honored you chose to entrust him to us! By the way, I was very enamored with the card you sent.
At one point I was seriously considering eating it, but my girl rescued it from my drool of death. Once I settled down to reading it, I'm very glad I did. (The Bear helped me decipher your Bear English.)
Here's what Bob said in the card: "To Stanley an all de famly. This is colld a "Mini Goober". I bort him for yu all in Norfolk. Luv from Bob T. Bear esq."
Bob, we willl always cherish our little goober spy, and we will make sure he knows that you are the one who arranged for us to adopt him from the Bear Adoption Center in Norfolk. By the way, did he tell you what his name is? He's still deep into spy mode and hasn't been willing to tell us yet.
Anyone out there with a name suggestion for our Mini Goober spy bear, please let us know. We're at a bit of a loss!
