The movie TED makes me laugh. A young boy’s wish for a real life TED is granted. 20 years later the living and breathing TED is the meat in his relationship sandwich, much to the disdain of his “slice of bread” girlfriend, played by Mila Kunis. I know lots of people with irrational attachments to fluffy animals, or creepy Russian dolls, so do you have a pet or “toy” who is third wheeling your relationship?
My brother has a TED in his life. Not a living breathing one, but a teddy he’s had since birth. Busy Bear has been a part of Andrew’s relationships since he lost his awkwardness at age 17 and became remotely attractive to the female species. His first girlfriend Alex liked Busy Bear. She bought him a Mrs. Busy Bear. But Mrs. Busy Bear miraculously disappeared around the same time Alex did.
Emma was also a fan. But Busy Bear stopped returning her calls when Andrew did. Even with a beautiful fiancé in tow Busy Bear goes down as Andrew’s longest and most successful relationship. And although I think he’s been kicked out of bed, he’s still very much part of the bedroom furniture.
Do you have a TED in your relationship? Is it cute or a turn off?
