No Other Otter

This is a greeting card I received in the mail. I smiled as soon as I saw this otter.

And I grinned from ear to ear when I opened it up and read it.

Later, when I talked to Julie she said she saw it months ago and JUST HAD to buy it.  "[The otter] loves eyeglasses just like YOU do!"

Growing up my Mother always said to me, "You're not the average bear." She always meant it affectionately, and it was always a reassurance, because I knew I was not like the other kids.

I can't tell you how much I love this image, and how it makes me smile every time I look at it. I know I am not your average bear, and I'm not like the Otters, either!
