Fopsie's First Date

July 23, 2010
It was Nibs' idea to set Fopsie up with his pal Mr. Brown. Teddy said this was OK, but she wanted the meeting to be super casual because she wasn't sure Fops would like Mr. Brown. After all, he is a short guy and Fops specifically said she did not want a shorty! (That Nibs never listens.)
Mr. Brown put on a nice show for Fopsie at his house. He served her pomegranate juice in an elegant wine glass and presented a tasty cheese plate complete with strawberries.
Fopsie was impressed and thought Mr. Brown was a true gentleman. He talked about his trips to Africa and how he likes to play golf.
Fopsie was a little nervous to dig into the cheese plate. After all, she wanted to seem like a lady, not some famished bear!
Mr. Brown must have sensed Fops was hungry because he kindly sliced a piece of the brie and put it on a plate along with some crackers and a strawberry. Fopsie liked how thoughtful he was.
Then Mr. Brown dropped a bombshell. He asked Fopsie if she had met his girlfriend Louise. He has a girlfriend!?! Fopsie was in shock. She then realized that Mr. Brown had no clue this was a date and merely was being courteous to a friend of a friend, that's all. Fopsie called Teddy immediately after she left Mr. Brown's house asking for an explanation! This is a BIG uh-oh.


  1. Will Teddy get mad at Nibs? YOU CAN BET ON IT!

  2. Hmmm... Teddy and Nibs should really work together on these set-ups. It seems like they're both working with half a brain!

  3. What a letdown for Fopsie! Nibs and Teddy need to be very clear and direct with all parties involved. There is no room for miscommunication in matchmaking.

  4. Awww, poor Fopsie. I'm sorry that it didn't work out. I hope she has better luck next time. Mr. Brown really did seem like a very nice bear. It's a shame.

  5. All the good ones are taken.
