“Why don’t you write a story about me and my journey from the Arctic Circle to your loving arms?” Snowflake said sweetly to Jen as she woke up.

“Uh, what? Bear it’s too early.” Jen replied half asleep and rolling over to face the cute little bear with the green hat and green scarf.

“Aren’t you suppose to be in charge of keeping me sane?”

“Yep, and I’m doing a damn fine job of it, even if I do say so myself.”

“Well tell L.P. to write it, or better yet use that blog of yours, you know the one you claim had eleven million hits just because you posted a picture of you and the other three boofheads.”

“Can’t do that, our server crashed last night after the number of viewers overloaded the system.”

“Leave me alone, Bear.” Jen responded half heartedly trying her best to go back to sleep.
