Day One - Most Awkward Meeting Ever
I had such high hopes when a fresh faced girl with a wide smile plucked me off the shelf and paid for me. She had me gift wrapped in a shiny box that was tied with a large white satin ribbon, which I only know because I’ve seen the shop people wrap other toys. I’d been waiting nearly my whole life for this, to be picked.
If you’ve never been put in a dark box and carried somewhere as a gift, let me tell you it was a thrill. I’m not being sarcastic. I was really thrilled. A whole new world was waiting for me. There would soon be a child to love me and take me places and give me a name. I hoped I’d get a good one and not something terrible like Flopsy or Ears.
