Unique (Okay, Wierd) Teddy Bear Name

When we were in Northern California, Deep Thinker’s class took a field trip to a factory where they make teddy bears. Before he went, he asked me my favorite color but wouldn’t tell me why. I said black. But he said, no, that he thought red might be a better one. So, I said “Okay, red.”

Then they got back from the field trip. He had made a red teddy bear. He told me all about how they stuffed it and then even put a little cushion inside shaped like a heart! And he said it was really for me, but he refused to give it to me. After that day, he began to sleep with the teddy bear every night.

Yesterday while I was tucking him in, he told me he had finally named his (yes, now his, no longer mine) teddy bear. I have no idea how he came up with this name, but it had me chuckling for the rest of the night. The name is Red Lightening. (By the way, the teddy is a boy.)
