    Greem Grahane One time I wrote 501 words.

    Kichael Mors One time I was six years old. Chuck Norris designed his mom’s wedding dress before he was born.

    I don’t remember if I had a stuffed teddy bear. With me if was at least a couple stuffed Garfields.

    May the Lord be with you as He is with me.

    Disciplined? More like an extreme case of OCD.

    The style of the wedding dress turned out nice, but Michael also learned that you shouldn’t create the flower patterns with crayons.

    Hm, isn’t that also something that happens in The Phantom Thread? (Great movie, by the way)

    I don’t have my childhood teddy bear (it might or might not be somewhere in my parents’ basement) but I do have a little stuffed baby I had since a child.

    Is it that more than half of American adults still have a childhood Teddy Bear, or is it that more that half of American adults that had a childhood Teddy Bear still have it? There is a difference.

    I have five stuffed animals from my childhood, and none of them are Teddy bears. There’s a zebra, giraffe, two dogs, and a cat.

    When I was little, Flipper was my favorite TV show. So I didn’t have a teddy bear; I had a teddy dolphin! (No, I don’t still have it.)

    Okay, we’ll call it “disciplined.” OCD much? ~ Sigmundolio Freud, Sigmund’s evil twin

    May the stored bear be with you as it isn’t free, and gesundheit.

    I don’t have my childhood Teddy anymore. Not for lack of trying to hang onto him. My mom had ton make me get rid of him. I wet the bed so much that it got on him and he got so soaked with it that she couldn’t get the smell out no matter how much she washed him. He was also coming apart and she kept trying to repair him and nothing would hold together anymore. There was nothing more Dr. Mom could do. I should’ve sued for malpractice!

    Disciplined or lazy? How long does it take to write 500 words especially if he puts in a lot of words like the, a, etc.,etc. I hope he worked weekends too!

    I very much doubt that he wrote exactly 500 words a day, and stopped in the middle of a sentence. He probably was facetious about it in a letter and someone took him seriously. He wrote at minimum 500 words, most likely, and finished the sentence.

    Not surprising half the population has yet to grow up, just look at that credit card debt. they are still babies. I t is no wonder that China is overtaking us lock stock and barrel.

    It is alright to keep your Teddy Bear, just don’t sleep with, otherwise people will think you are strange.

    I had a deprived (not depraved) childhood apparently. Never had a teddy bear!

    I no longer have my childhood teddy bears but I do have my daughter’s. We used to play together and I gave them voices. We had so much fun. They now sit on the headboard of the bed in my guest room.

    She’ll be forty this year but there is still a huge sentimental attachment.
