I used to carry around a small brown teddy bear everywhere I went. I imagined that he liked traveling as much as I did. I named him Aeschylus, while learning about the “Father of Tragedy” in history class.
In college, my best friend had to leave for another country. I thought it was time for Aeschylus to venture into a different part of the world, so I let him go along.
Not too long afterwards, my best friend sent a package from abroad. She found a small teddy bear that looked exactly like Aeschylus, except that it was in my favorite color: purple.
Maybe someday, he will be reunited with his twin Aeschylus. Who knows?
Achelous was feeling extra glamorous yesterday, so I took some photos at the office lounge. He also wanted to be featured here on my blog, so here’s the critter:
