I had a teddy bear that was my best friend growing up, and I talked to him every single day. He had a personality and a voice and everything. I would create elaborate scenarios and we'd live them out together.

Actually it was exactly like Calvin and Hobbes, except he was a bear instead of a tiger. And my scenarios weren't quite as elaborate as Calvin's and involved conversations more than adventures. It pains me to say this, but maybe I was less like Calvin and Hobbes, and more like Susie Derkins having tea parties with her stuffed animals:


Did you have stuffed animals growing up? Do you remember talking to them... and (be honest), did they talk back?
