Last May I found a Gund My First Bear at a fleemarket and fell in love with him. I gave him to my sister for her birthday because she was going through a rough time and I thought a teddy bear might help her, but I regretted parting with him because he was such a soft, cuddly squuzzybear and Sis never really was into bears, so I figured he would never be loved.
When she lived with us she kept him on her dresser, and I used to always pick him up and squuz him every time I'd walk by. I'd stand there for like five minutes just balling and hugging the bear. Then he disappeared on me, and I assumed one of her kids had found him and adopted him. I always kicked myself for parting with him, though, and I always wanted to find a bear like him.
A couple days ago I found a bear that looked sort of familiar. Today my sister came over and something told me to ask her what the label was on him. It turns out he's the exact bear I gave to her, and apparently he'd been in my pack all along. She said I could keep him, and really didn't act like she was that interested in him. It was just so weird. I've got my bear back.
My beloved bear finally has a name. It's a bit unusual, as I got it from a book I was reading. There was a character named Torio Vico, not sure if that's how it was spelled or not because it's an audiobook, but that's what it sounds like. I've been looking for a really cool name for this bear because I like for my closest pack members to have really cool names, and he's very special to me. This morning it hit me that Torio Vico was the perfect name for him, so I asked him if he liked it and he was like, "Oh that's awesome."
Poor little Torio already got his first tear bath today. Today was sort of emotional for me, so the bear now has tear-stains on his head. Oh well, that's a badge of honor in my pack and Torio definitely deserves lots of special care *squuzzes and kisses her beloved Torio Vico*.
