Here’s someone that isn’t a Charlie Bear for a change, but deeply precious to me. And I expect a lot of “I have the same plushie!!” comments, as he was a popular Build-A-Bear. But no one else has my own, my very special Ricky. He is the head honcho of all my plushies, the one that gets drawn with me, my best stuffie friend. He always wears a collar that Blankit Blankit made.
Ricky has a lot of memories attached to him, including some very sad ones, but he will always be my gentle little companion. He is named after Richard Parker from Life of Pi.
