August 9, 2010 Finally, Herbert was allowed to open his gift from Teddy. He was not surprised to find a bow tie! After all, Teddy had been chattering on and on about the importance of bow ties all day.
Still, Herbert thought it was very kind of Teddy to buy him a present. She even helped him put the thing on!
Herbert had to agree with Teddy. The bow tie look was far more sophisticated than the sweater look.
Once Herbert was seated, Teddy had some news for him. "I have a wonderful bear to set you up with," said Teddy. "But you must treat her like a princess!"
Herbert said he was ready. He really wasn't sure if he was ready. After all, he had just landed in America and hadn't even furnished his apartment yet. But Teddy insisted he was ready because he had met all her requirements: he was single, he had a good job and he wasn't planning on moving to Hong Kong anytime soon. Herbert had no idea Teddy was so bossy!
