"He has some issues," DD said as we drove to the fairgrounds. "He'll be lucky if he even gets displayed." I asked her why.
"He has low-quality fur. It's thin in spots."
No big deal, I assure her.
"And he has a green spot on his crotch."
Yikes. Turns out that Zig marker I loaned her to mark the pattern shows through fur. (Oh, yeah...It's for paper.)
Well, I dare say those sewing judges should not be looking at Teddy's crotch anyway.
DD went on to explain that because there is no junior-level category for stuffed toys, Teddy will be competing with the Big Boys in the adult division.
We both know that competition in that division is quite stiff. There could be dolls, dinosaurs, and even bigger bears with plush fur. We won't know who Teddy will face in competition until the judging is complete in a couple of weeks. He's on his own.
Thinning fur and green crotch aside, my money is on Teddy. I mean, who could resist those chocolate brown eyes?
Out of the way, stuffed animals. Teddy will take you down.
