…yeah, I might have a bit of a problem.
Especially considering that these guys take up a good 25-50% of the bed.
But they do create a soft, cushiony barrier between me and the wall, which is nice.
AND no monsters have grabbed me in my sleep, which I fully credit these guys for.
AND they do keep me company to a certain extent while I’m hanging out in my room.
I mean, yes, they’re technically just toys, but there’s something about stuffed animals that are more than that, I suppose. Maybe it’s this weird nostalgia factor (a good lot of them I’ve had for a while and have taken with me to places, like college), maybe it’s because they have this tangible, almost real quality about them, I don’t know. It’s hard to explain. Maybe I’ve just seen Toy Story too many times. Who knows.
What I do know is that for now, they’re going to stay right where they are. Because my bed would seem like an awfully lonely place without them.
