Rapture! Today is May 21st …May 21st, 2011 by Chung Fu Magic Teddy Bear
I am thinking “Oh oh … today is the day when all the good people are taken off to heaven to wear white robes and play harps nicely, so Mr. Rick will no longer be under my care and guidance – what will I do?”
Mr. Rick is a good man, but I think he will get bored myself. As his honourable teddy bear I only want what is best for him, but it is hard not to spare a thought for myself. Mr. Caerthan won’t be going. We are sure of that (Mr. Arthur has worked wonders but there is a long way to go). So I will stay here with him, Mr. Arthur and Roadkill, but a teddy bear with no charge … doing what?!? Maybe if Mr. Caerthan would take me back to Taunton Deane I could start all over again.
But that was such a long time ago … I was not so saggy …
Up until yesterday, we were not sure about Mr. Rick. It is not enough that I say he will be captured – sorry, raptured. After all I am very biased. Mr Arthur and myself have been discussing for some time – I say “yes!”, he say “no!”. Yesterday however, Roadkill piped up.
Now Roadkill doesn’t say a lot. He sings happily pretty much all of the time (for teddy ears – people ears only when they listen hard or have been playing with magic potions), but when he actually woofs it is major sparkles, and he woofed: “without a shadow of doubt Mr. Rick will be going”. He has it on highest authority!
Highest authority? Authority is a messy business, but with Roadkill that can only be Olive-Bless-Her-Soul? I think so. Who knows, Roadkill moves in mysterious ways.
So … today big changes are happening. The only good thing I can think of is that it is happening at 6 o’clock, which means it should be over before Dr. Whoo! starts at 6.45. Of course I may not be in the mood for watching it by then …
Arthur says I have had a good ride, and will have many happy memories, but I shall miss Mr. Rick very very much.
