No, really.  How much does it cost to build a bear?  Like $30?

No one is waiting in line for 3 hours to save like $5-10.  So we're talking people with two kids under 10, probably at least one under 5.

If you are under 3, you're too young to even know what's going on with bears so no one is doing that for an infant.  That leaves kids between 4-9.  Do you really think there are that many kids who are interested in spending 3 hours on a hot summer day waiting in line to build a stuffed bear?  I doubt it.

So it seems to me what we are talking about is ADULTS who are into their kids building bears.  Why are they so into their kids building bears?  It's not like you actually build a real bear.  Or even a fake bear.  My understanding is you just point at a bunch of bear parts and some kind of machine sews it together for you.

Yes, about $30.  And you don't even build the bear, it is pre-made.  What you do get to do is hold it while someone helps put stuffing into it.  And a heart.  Then you get to decide what kinds of clothes it wears or if it gets a voice box thing or whatever.  Back when I had no money, this was a highlight of our vacation with our small children.  Had to save up for that.  And limit what they could get, one piece of clothing or one peripheral thing.

Some people are really into it though, but now we pass the Build-A-Bear Workshop that they used to go to and laugh.  I'm pretty sure Alex still has his first one though.

All is well with the family...Kids are growing up quickly.  My son is 8 and daughter is 7.  My wife just finished her doctorate and we are still here in Cranford NJ.  I had some medical issues this year and had emergency surgery on my colon.  One more surgery in a few weeks and I should be good as new.  I hope everyone here is doing well.

Some dummy in my office uses a wad of wet paper towels for something and then puts that used wad of wet paper towels on the sink ledge, in case someone else would like to use it for something. What kind of nonsense is this? I've thrown this away for someone at least 4 or 5 times in the last couple of weeks. WTF?

I think in this case it is just "want not."

Everytime you hear her, ask her what song she is humming.  Ask her EVERY single time.

This has begun.
It seemed to work, kinda.
"Uh. You can hear me? I need to bring in a headset."

Oops. Nope. She started humming again in the time it took me to type this.

Sounds like you are the one who needs headphones. Block that shit out.
