I ran into this man at a local toy store. He was buying a teddy bear for himself, and he and his friend were having a pretty serious conversation about the proper selection criteria. The two men argued for a moment over one particular bear which both agreed was the cutest in the store, but only one man–the man in my drawing–believed it to be sufficiently cuddly and soft. He ended up purchasing that bear, even over the objections of his friend. His explanation, of which I only heard a part, was that he liked “lovely things” and could better tolerate a moderately cuddly bear that was extremely beautiful than a moderately beautiful bear that was extremely soft and cuddly. Case closed.
