The Little Bear That Knew It All by ianna1289

I woke up on the morning of my birthday excited as I could be,because my parents were getting me a very special gift this year.

April 27, 2009, 10:05 am - [1]

I knew this particular gift was going to be amazing becuase I saw the large, wrapped box hidden in my parents closet.

April 27, 2009, 10:06 am - [2]

I finally opened the box at my party, I pulled out a medium sized teddy bear. This was particularly confusing for me, becuase I am now 19.

April 27, 2009, 10:09 am - [3]

My parents explain to me that this not an ordinary teddy bear, but it was 'smart bear' and would soo become my best friend.

April 27, 2009, 10:10 am - [4]

Again, I was confused as to why this bear would become my friend, but I decided to give it a try becuase my parents insisted on it.

April 27, 2009, 10:11 am - [5]

I bring this teddy bear into my room, sit on my bed, and give the bear a big hug. I jumped off my bed when I heard the bear SAY 'Thanks!'

April 27, 2009, 10:13 am - [6]

In my confusion, I shook my head and wondered if the bear actually spoke to me, or I just imagined it. But I soon realized that it was it.

April 27, 2009, 10:14 am - [7]

The voice really did come from the bear, but it was not an automated voice. It was a real voice that spoke to me when I gave it a hug.

April 27, 2009, 10:16 am - [8]

I asked the bear, "can you talk?" The bear responded by saying, "Yes, my name is Theo and I will be your best friend." I couldnt believe it!

April 27, 2009, 10:18 am - [9]

I began asking Theo questions such as, "How do you work?" "What do you do?" "Can you see me?" "Can you hear me?"

April 27, 2009, 10:22 am - [10]

Theo smoothly responded to every question with ease. He informed me that he can see, hear, and learn, and that he is there to help me.

April 27, 2009, 10:28 am - [11]

I was curious how this little bear could actually help me, but I just let Theo keep talking. He told me that he could answer any question.

April 27, 2009, 10:31 am - [12]

The only catch to this, it that he technically did not know the anwers, yet. He needed to be programed with information first.

April 27, 2009, 10:32 am - [13]

In order for this to work, Theo needed to read any and all reading materials. Theo had the ability to read and comprehend anything.

April 27, 2009, 10:35 am - [14]

Theo told me that if I held a book in front of his eyes, he would instantly 'know' everything on the page. I thought this was AMAZING!

April 27, 2009, 10:37 am - [15]

I went around my house looking for encycolpedias, magazines, books and newspapers for Theo to read. Two hours later, Theo knew more than I!

April 27, 2009, 10:43 am - [16]

That night, I went to sleep in a daze and couldnt believe my parents had gotten me this crazy gift. I woke up the next day in confusion.

April 27, 2009, 10:45 am - [17]

I was certain that Theo was not real and I had been dreaming. So to test this, I went up to Theo and said, "Who was the 33rd President?"

April 27, 2009, 10:48 am - [18]

"Harry S. Truman of course," was the response Theo gave me. I couldnt believe that this really was happening and was very happy.

April 27, 2009, 10:50 am - [19]

I decided to put Theo to work immediatly. I brought him to school that day, and had him read all of my text books in every subject.

April 27, 2009, 10:51 am - [20]

The next day, my friend from school asks me a question about our History paper, and I relay the question to Theo. He, of course, answers.

April 27, 2009, 10:52 am - [21]

My friend was impressed that I 'knew' the answer so quickly, and she told me that I should tutor her. I figure this may be a good idea.

April 27, 2009, 10:56 am - [22]

Since the girl didnt know my secret weapon, word about how smart I was and how I might tutor before our next test spread through the school.

April 27, 2009, 10:59 am - [23]

Theo and I had several voice mails asking 'me' to tutor them. I figure this may be a quick way to make some easy money.

April 27, 2009, 11:00 am - [24]

I set up an appointment with the first girl for the next day. After our session she pays me $10. When she left I thank Theo for his work

April 27, 2009, 11:03 am - [25]

I thought Theo would say "your Welcome," but he did not even look at me. He would not make eye contact with me, or even respond to me.

April 27, 2009, 11:04 am - [26]

I was very confused and begged Theo to talk becuase I had another session later that day, and I needed him! Theo turned to me and stared.

April 27, 2009, 11:05 am - [27]

He eventually told me that I was a terrible person for scamming my poor friends. He even told me that I should go give the money back.

April 27, 2009, 11:06 am - [28]

Theo said that I was morally corrupt for using a teddy bear to make a few dollars, and that I was not worthy of being his friend.

April 27, 2009, 11:07 am - [29]

I never told Theo that I was scamming, he just figured it out on his own. I couldnt believe he really knew everything, even this about me.

April 27, 2009, 11:08 am - [30]

Then I look down at the table, and I see the newspaper I just had him read, open to an article about HS students scamming others for money.

April 27, 2009, 11:09 am - [31]

I suppose Theo did know everything, as long as I showed it to him first. Unfortunatly it backfired on me this time.
