Plush Animal Lover’s Day – October 28th

I’m going to let you in on a little secret.  When I was six years old my uncle bought me a stuffed seal that I named “Sitka” after the island it was supposed to come from.  I loved that seal!  His arm would cover my neck every night to protect me from vampires.  I slept with him until I was 18 years old.  At that point I had shared an apartment with my brother.  Sitka went into storage and I never saw him again.  My brother claimed that Sitka had suffered from mildew damage and he had to throw him away.  Between you and me, I was never entirely convinced this was true.  I miss Sitka to this day.  Yes, I know I am 39 years old, but it doesn’t change how I felt about that seal.
