The icemaker in our freezer broke this weekend which led me to actually make use of a cute Teddy Bear ice cube tray I purchased on an impulse at some point in the past. As I was plunking the little frozen Teddy Bears into my glass, my son Alex remarked. "Two of your favorite things enjoyed together, Teddy Bears, and Diet Coke!"
This comment led to the following amusing exchange.
Alex: Which would your rather give up,Teddy Bears or Diet Coke?
Me: Diet Coke. (No hesitation.Diet Coke is not really good for you, but Teddy Bears are!)
Alex: Would you rather give up, Teddy Bears or TV?
Me: (again without hesitaion) TV!
Alex: Teddy Bears or the Internet?
Me: (With a little hesitation this time, I do enjoy the internet) I'd give up the Internet.
Alex: Teddy Bears or electricity?
Me: (No response.)
Me: I'm thinking!
And I'm still thinking! And laughing at myself for contemplating a question which should be a "no- brainer". Electricity sure does make life easier, but a life without Teddy Bears is hard for me to imagine! Anyone else out there as crazy as me that you might consider giving up electricity before giving up making, collecting,or hugging Teddy Bears?
