Some weeks ago, I came home from a long day at school, and was greeted at the door by Angel saying, "Baby, don't be mad."
That's a rather disconcerting greeting, and I insisted that he tell me why I should not be mad.
But, "Promise you won't be mad." was all he would say.
Finally, I gave in. I promised.
"I accidentally bought a bear costume on eBay." he said.
This was not quite as bad of a sin as I had been expecting, based on his insistence on extracting the "I won't be mad" promise from me. Still.
"How did you 'accidentally' buy a bear costume on eBay? You can't 'accidentally' buy something."
"Well, I bid on it, but I didn't really think I was going to win it. I thought for sure someone would outbid me. But this morning, I got the email congratulating me on winning it, so now I have to pay for it."
A bear costume. Really, I wasn't all that surprised. Angel's told me in the past how he thought it would be so awesome to have a bear costume of his very own.
The bear costume arrived while Angel was out, and I hid it and took a video of Angel's reaction to seeing his costume for the first time. The video is belly-ache hilarious, but, unfortunately, it's also too scandalous for public viewing. Oh well.
Of course, upon receiving the bear costume, we decided that the obvious thing anyone should do who owns a bear costume is to create a photo series involving photos of a bear participating in random realistic and not so realistic activities. From now on, look for the next entry into the Bear With Me blog series every Tuesday, at least until we run out of pictures.
Suggestions of activities for the bear to participate in/locations in which he should be photographed are heartily welcomed. All suggestions that we use will be credited and linked to you! (Unless, of course, you don't want to be linked to your own ideas.)
I sure hope you guys are as excited about the Bear With Me project as I am (or, at the very least, I hope you're vaguely amused by it.) If you love the idea, feel free to spread the word on social media--Angel and I already have a bunch of ideas for photo ops, but we can always use more!
