Clever! Ted (the living, breathing one and the cuter one of the two) happens to be a good friend of mine. I see he’s been running a contest where people can send in their description of where they’d take Bobblehead Ted. Here’s my list:
If I were to receive a Bobblehead Ted I pledge to take him to Italy with me next year. Together we’d have great fun exploring the canals of Venice, the Blue Grotto at Capri, the ancient sites in Rome, and the glorious galleries of Florence. I’d even make sure he saw the REAL David, and not the fake one in the Piazza della Signoria.
If I were to receive a Bobblehead Ted I pledge to take him on my next Camino with me. I wouldn’t even make him walk…he could just sit on my back and enjoy the ride. One caveat: I’d have to restrict his intake of Spanish wine somewhat for fear he’d topple out of my pack and be lost to the Camino gods forever (hey Bobblehead, I’m just looking out for your welfare).
If I were to receive a Bobblehead Ted I pledge to take him to Sibelius Park in Toronto and tell him stories about ‘the good old days’ when his namesake and I used to lie there and watch the stars at night.
If I were to receive a Bobblehead Ted I pledge to bring him back to the East Coast at least once so he could get reaquainted with his heritage and dip his toe into the Atlantic Ocean. Just imagine the joyous and emotional reunion there would be between Bobblehead and On the Go Ted!
And finally, if I were to receive a Bobblehead Ted I pledge to keep him happy by stocking my shelves and cupboards with all his necessities: an endless supply of single malt, an extensive vintage vinyl collection, and DVDs of all his favourite movies, including Clockwork Orange, To Kill a Mockingbird, and Casablanca. I’d even dig up an old copy of The Creature from the Black Lagoon, the 3-D version.
So Bobblehead, Bobblehead, please come live with me. I think it could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
