Hide and Seek

Hi. I'm Charles the Bear Cub. You know me. I live on Sparkle Road with my buddy, James. He's really old. He was the second Canadian to get off Noah's Ark, you know.

Oh. Wait! Chance lives with us, too. He's a newborn cubby someone left in a basket on our doorstep. He's a wee little thing. I look after Chance, too. He's a handful! 

Know what? Chance and me are hangin' around thinking of something to do that's fun on a hot summer day. I know! We'll play Hide and Seek. Chance isn't a very good hider, though. He's so little he thinks that when he closes his eyes, he's invisible. That's silly. I can see him, plain as day. He can't be invisible just because he closes his eyes. He'll learn one day when he's older, like me.

It's really hot outside this morning. It's 27C and getting warmer by the minute. James says it's hotter than h-e-double-hockey sticks. I know what that means. It means we have to drink lots of water and root beer and wallermelon juice to stay cool.

This is how we play Hide and Seek. I hide my eyes and count to 100 like this--one elephant, two elephant, three elephant--all the way too 100 elephant. While I'm counting, Chance has to hide somewhere really good and hope I can't find him.

When I get to 100 elephant, I go look for Chance. If I find him he's "it". He can run and touch base and win, too. If I see him, I run to base and holler, "One, two, three on Chance!" That means I win. Sometimes I have to holler, "Ollie! Ollie! In Free!" and then he wins but Chance never wins 'cuz I always find him. I'm a very good Finder. That's 'cuz I'm five and I have lots of experience playing this game.

Today I can't find Chance anywhere! I looked here and I looked there. I looked around. I looked everywhere. He must have found a really good spot to hide. I bet James helped Chance hide.

I found Chance! He was hiding over my head!  I didn't think to look up! Chance fell down! Lucky he didn't get hurt! He climbs everything you know. He even climbed to the top of our Christmas tree. I had to say, "My son! Come down from there this instant!" He really is a handful.

Oh. Wait! Did you hear that? James is hollering, "Where are my handsome bear cubs? Where are my Sons of Windsor? Where are my Princes of Ontario? That's me! Charles! That's Chance! We're handsome bear cubs. We're Sons of Windsor and Princes of Ontario! We gotta go find James so we can get our ears tickled and our noses kissed. 

This is me, Charles the Bear Cub saying, "Be good citizens. Have fun playing Hide and Seek with your friends and buddies.  Then you can eat Smarties and drink root beer. Oh! Wait! Come over to our house and play Hide and Seek with us! Okay! Over and out!"
