I’m sorry the video is so terribly short and a bit shaky… I was extremely excited to be at the most beautiful freshwater spring/old growth forest area of all time with my best friends and it was raining (I was desperately trying to angle/shuffle any water off my camera cover) 💗🌺 You can hear my bbs being silly and adorable while I gush like a total tranced out goober >_>
Groot feels like laquered wood and smells like vanilla!
Photo 1: He went right for my shiny yellow-green Tangle, though you can’t see the Tangle in this picture. I told him that it’s a stim toy for autistic people, and he leaned over and tried to eat it. Groot for real bit my Tangle! :)
Photo 2: I showed Groot my chewable Dulcimer pendant after he tried to bite my Tangle, but I told him he probably won’t want to bite the Dulcimer because it had been in my mouth. Note that I’m holding the Tangle in that same hand.
Photo 3: Groot LOVES to give hugs as much as I do! He was so cute about it, too! <3 <3 <3
Groot hugs are the best hugs. He waits for you to let go before he lets go, so he’ll hug you as long as you want or until the staff members let you know it’s time to let the next people in line have their turn.
I asked him if I could give him a kiss and after he okayed it, so I kissed his cheek! <3 (He leaned over, I’m not pulling on him.)
Video (Warning: Flicker from flash photography. Also, that’s my sister who joins in, and her shirt is wet because of the pink towel around her neck. Groot seemed to like her hair, LOL.)
And to anyone who calls this cringey: Get over yourself. I’m very aware costumed characters are people playing a part. I like to get into the magic, so I treat costumed cast members as if they’re the character they dressed up as. It’s not only magical for me, it makes it magical for any kids who might be watching and listening.
Still fangirling at an unhealthy level. I still haven’t washed the shirt. Tom Hiddleston pheromones for life. Also wondering if my picture is still on his phone. Haunts me every damn day and I don’t hesitate to remind people that it does.
