Welcome to another Wednesday Picture Day at The Nest. As can often happen during retail’s slow time of the year, I will find myself stocking way outside of my usual element many nights in January. Sunday night bought me a short trip to the Valentine’s aisle where I spent about half an hour putting up nauseatingly cute stuffed animals for naive boyfriends and pussywhipped hubbies to buy for their sweeties. There’s a friendly note in some of the boxes these plushies come in that reminds us of the long, hard and claustrophobic journeys many of these cheaply produced tokens of the season must take in order to reach the shelf of your local Mecca.
I’VE BEEN SITTING IN THE BOX FOR MONTHS,
Pleeeeease……SHAKE ME OUT,
AND FLUFF ME UP!
Thank you!! 🙂
I brought one of those signs home and set up everyone’s favorite bimbocorn Mitzi to pose with it. As I mentioned in the post I dedicated to her a couple weeks ago, Mitzi had to endure this journey from China to the States three years ago herself…. so she knows what it’s like to be trapped inside of a small, dark cardboard box with eleven of her identical twins without seeing the light of the sun for a quarter of a year. You can only imagine what those kind of harsh conditions would do to a pretty girl’s fur and mane…
So, I wonder if anyone will take Mitzi up on her request……..
I’ll be back next Wednesday with another photo that should’ve stayed in the box….
