I'm letting go of my childhood teddy, Slompy, I've had since I was 2 years old. He's been my constant in a life full of twists and turns, always right there on my bed when I've needed him most. He's soothed me in times of heartache, followed me around the world, and listened with patience to me talk in my sleep. However, the time has now come to retire this dapper old fellow. You've done me well, Slompy. I hope your new home (the bookshelf) will be full of just as much love and adventure!
