~ When I bought it I encountered one of those situations where I let strangers believe what they assume. The cashier lady saw the bear and her eyes lit up. "Oh! Somebody's going to be excited to get this!" ~ She thinks I'm giving this adorable toy to my non-existent child. Little does she know I'm about to disembowel it. I answer, "Yeah", with a that's-what-I'm-hoping-for air. ~ She sets it on the top of the bagging carousel as if I'm supposed to put it in my cart naked. I ask her to put it in a bag if she has one big enough. ~ She says, "So you can hide it?" ~ This time I give her the truth, "No, I don't want it to get dirty in the car." It's 3am lady. My kid better be sleeping.
