Unbearable

I'm kinda handsy.

I always have to have something in my hand (laaaaaaaaaadies). When sitting at my desk, it is normally a pen or a binder clip or something else that I can make annoying noises until my coworkers speak with HR to understand how killing me would effect their employment status.

So to counteract my handsinaciousness, a coworker bought me a small, rubber bear that I can play with and not bother anyone.

The bear soon became part of my office persona. It came with me to meetings, it would turn up in compromising positions on my desk and if you walked by quick enough, you could probably catch me chewing on it (who's scary now, bear?)

But while on the phone on Friday, my cozy, cuddly bear exploded in a mass of Timothy Treadwell.

So today is a sad day. My bear has left me with not only empty hands, but an empty heart.

RIP Bear.
It's better to blow up in a fireworks display of tiny plastic balls than to fade away.

my boss has a line of plastic animals above his desk that end up in compromising positions about once a week. and mounting the bear's head...totally something we'd do.

Only you would think of mounting his head. Fantastic!

So does this mean your going to get another bear or perhaps a lion or a tiger (oh my!)?

I got so wrapped up reading about Timmy I had forgotten how I got there. I had to hit the back button and there you were.

OMG, I absolutely love that you mounted the tiny head over your phone. LOL.

My dad once got an award at work and the plaque was a GIANT furry bear's ass and engraved under it said "Head down, ass up!"

Still really disturbed by the thing to be honest...

And more disturbed it's still hanging in my parents basement.

Maybe you should mount his ass next to his head?

Always a Bridesmaid said 'mounted the tiny head.'

Just thought I'd point that out.

LOL ooohhh the bear's head on the wall, how sentimental. Should I provide you with another squishy toy? But I'm afraid you'll blow it up again.
