For this one, you must keep your life secure while seeking a way out of the Teddy Bear Dimension.
THE PICNIC (any gender, mid teens through late life)
Ah-hem. Soooo... Thank you, thank you, thank you everybody. I'm not a BABY bear but I do find myself
I do find myself sleepy.
Sleepy, sleepy SLEEPY. I think I'd better skippity-skip back to my appartment-- I mean my cottage-- I mean my... Bear Cave? Sweet warm little bitty Bear Cave? Or maybe it's--
(oh shit, that's right)
HA! Just making a funny. Tee-hee-hee. We're TEDDY BEARS... so of course, I've got to go sneaky-week back onto the snuggly-puggly pillow of my master's ROOM? Right? Right?
[pause... dry gulp]
I guess you could say I'm a new Teddy. This is my very first picnic. So... I know our song talks about how humans aren't allowed. How it's safer to stay at home. And how if they do go out, they should be in disguise. But, but, but... what if a human just found themselves in snuggly buggly Teddy Body all of a sudden? Like if a wormhole to an alternate dimension opened--
-- I mean. What I mean to say... If a TEDDY were a little confusalled about his Teddyness, the other Teddies wouldn't see him as a spy, right? What DO we Teddies do to the humans if we spot one?
