So, I got home last night after a loooooong day and opened the mailbox to find not one but TWO swap packages waiting for me! I had heard of such things happening, but never dreamed it would happen to me! One of them was squirming and wriggling around quite a bit- in fact, it was hard to keep a hold of it.
I opened the door and ran to get the scissors... the parcel was really hopping around by now, and I snipped a corner off the envelope carefully- I didn't want to accidentally cut whoever was inside! Suddenly, a blue paw thrust itself through the hole, waving a pink tulip in front of my startled eyes (but how did he know that pink tulips are my favourite flowers??).
Suddenly, the hole was ripped open from inside and out flew FLOYD THE OMNIPOTENT FEAR MONSTER!!! He flew around my place, looking for monsters to beat up, and only when he was satisfied that the place was secure did he fly back to me and settle gently on my shoulder. He whispered, "Kristen81 sent me to you, and you'll never be bothered by the Vile Monsters of Loneliness again! I have a black belt in kung fu, and big pointy teeth.... you'll be safe with me around!"
I know that he looks scarey, but that's just to scare away the monsters. Not only does he bear gifts of flowers, but he also has a great sense of humour, as you can tell by his twinkly eyes and infectious smile.
As you can see, Floyd's arms are long and strong, not only for kicking the a$$ of any monsters lurking behind the plants, but also for giving big hugs. You can also see he is well protected by his spiny back:
In fact, I just think that he is the most perfect fear monster I have ever seen.
Thanks, Kristen81, for sharing him with me!
