HE REMEMBERS THE BEAR!
So I got up to get him to sign my poster, which he did very graciously. And I added that I didn’t know if he’d remember this little guy, and pulled out the bear. He stared at Bucky Bear for a moment, blinking. Then:
That was you? I nodded.
You were at Picnic? I nodded.
This is the bear?
And then he leaned back and grinned and went Oh YES I remember! And he promptly reached forward to take hold of the bear and take it from me to hold with this look of wonder before going “I need a picture.”
The handler next to him had just yelled at my friend that we couldn’t take pictures, and told her again that she couldn’t, but Sebastian insisted. So we snapped it quickly and he handed the bear back with a grin and a very solmen, “We’re friends now.”
He later told me at the photo op that he was never going to forget that little bear.
And that, friends, is how I died.
she breathes the sea.
sometimes sighing and feeling
in tidal waves,
a sadness bitter sweet
like sea foam.
battered each day
she is dragged piece by piece.
a deadened shell calls her home.

This is probably going to be a big deal tomorrow. The NFL can’t do anything right this year.
it is a big deal, how many times has tebow kneeled down? Has he ever been penalized? No. Bullshit. Then they have the audacity to be calling it excessive celebration, screw the NFL. Let a white Christian male kneel down and protect his ass, create a movement and call it tebowing, but once a Black Muslim Male does it, it’s flagged. IT’S ALL FUN AND GAMES UNTIL IT’S NO LONGER INVOLVING A WHITE CHRISTIAN MALE BUT RATHER A BLACK MUSLIM. LOAD OF B.S.
