Yesterday I had a visit from a couple of sweet little girls, Beth and Clara, and let me tell you they were a lot of fun! They carried me around the house, tried to feed me animal crackers and water, pulled my arms and teeth, played peek-a-boo with me, and sang me the ABC's. Oh, I had such fun! I don't get to see many small children, in fact, that was only the second time I had seen any in real life. I like them because they are more my size. But even more than that I can always tell when children are happy or sad. Children always let a person know how they feel. They don't try to cover it up. Many times I've had to smile even if I felt horrible inside. I know smiling has its benefits, and it's usually contagious, but if I were a child I wouldn't have to smile if I didn't want to. But Beth and Clara smiled a lot. They must be very happy. I just couldn't help myself but smile the whole time they were here!
Standing with me here is Abbot. He's new. A new creation. I like him a lot. We have a lot in common, for one thing, our green faces. His is a little different color, and his two eyes are different, but I like him just the same. (He has POCKETS!) In the Creature Factory, I have learned, we are ALL different, and that's what makes us special. My maker was toying with the idea of creating me a friend, but I am unsure if Abbot will be allowed to stick around. I am trying not to get too close to him in case he moves away. I know that deep inside I should try to make as many friends as possible, that ALL friends make me into the being I am, whether I know them a long time or a short time. I guess I will have to add this to my list of questions to ponder. I'm quite accomplished at pondering. I wonder what my maker would suggest?
Until next time.
