sock monkey rehab

i came across this sad character at a thrift store, covered in stains, filthy, riddled with open seams, eyes ripped off. i gave him a bath which got rid of most of the grossness, now i just need to mend him. his name is "gaza" because he's eyeless.

My ex found a battered teddy bear when she was collecting charity bags. She sewed him up and I named him Berlioz. He has pride of place on a chest of drawers in my bedroom. Sometimes he looks worried and needs reassurance, poor chap.

'Gaza' I like.

berlioz sounds adorable. worn teddies are capable of the most endearingly pathetic expressions.
