Little Bear's Adventure's
I feel as old as this little matchbox. Beth has kept the tiny box since her mother used up the matches in Italy, 55 years ago.
I'm not that old, but I look as worn out as that box. I climbed in it for a while, when Beth was packing for the trip. Then I asked, "Why are you taking this box to Italy?"
My Pose in Pisa
When we got to Pisa, there were about a zillion people taking pictures, pretending to hold up the Leaning Tower, with their hands.
People doing poses with selfie-sticks and doing glamor shots. And then Beth just stuck me in the grass, with the matchbox.
The Leaning Box
Instead of looking cool like everyone else, I just sat in the grass looking like I was holding up this leaning matchbox.
I was embarrassed when people walked by and wondered why I was doing this. Beth assured me, they were too busy taking their own photo to notice me.
That sort of made me sad. I told Beth she wasn't a very good photographer. because in this photo the tower is blurry and it's not leaning.
Beth said "Oh well." and tucked me away with the matchbox. Later she apologized and so did I. We both blamed our moods on jet lag.
