This morning鈥檚 adventure was setting up outside holiday decorations including an inflatable polar bear we鈥檝e had a few years. Upon inflating it, we discovered it had a tear in a seam. We like to fix things when we can so I decided to stitch it.

We discovered that keeping the air pressure at a certain level made it easier to stitch so my husband鈥檚 job was to turn the air on and off as I stitched. He was also handing me things I needed.

After a few minutes, we both started treating it like a surgery. I鈥檇 say with urgency, 鈥減ressure is dropping - more oxygen Dr. Bob!鈥 when the bear needed more inflation. Bob would repeat 鈥渙xygen鈥 and turn on the air. I鈥檇 say 鈥渟uture鈥 if I needed more thread and he鈥檇 repeat it and hand it to me.

It took about 1/2 hour to complete the stitching. At one point he was getting impatient and I said, 鈥淒ammit Bob, I鈥檓 a librarian not a miracle worker,鈥 at which point we both got the giggles.

After we repaired the bear successfully we high fived and congratulated each other - 鈥淭hank you for your assistance, Dr Bob.鈥 鈥淚 expect the patient will make a full recovery, Dr. Dana.鈥 It was then I noticed our neighbors and their dog trainer peering at us over their wall.

It was hard to tell from their expressions if they were amused or concerned. I waved, smiled and assured them the life saving surgery was successful. At least they have an interesting story to tell about us since we鈥檙e the newest folks in the neighborhood. 馃槀馃巹
