Teddy Measures Up

January 24, 2011
This morning Nibs noticed Teddy weeping at the dining room table and asked her what was wrong.
Teddy said she read on that BSS (Bear Shrinking Syndrome) was hereditary so she's afraid she'll get Aunt Endora's devilish condition. Nibs offered to measure Teddy to prove to her that she's not shrinking.
Teddy came out at one foot exactly, which is the same height she was when she met Nibs 10 years ago. Teddy was relieved.
Teddy kept looking at the measuring tape, wondering quietly what it would like to go down to 10 inches, 5 inches, then finally 1 inch. BSS must be frightening!
Poor AE. Teddy will have to be very nice to her now, forgetting all that cruelty AE unleashed on her decades ago. Soon AE will be the size of a small bug! Teddy hopes the old lady never gets stepped on.
