I surrender: Simply 6 Minutes

I used to wonder why some soft toys are made with a certain posture. Their upper limbs, or “arms” are held up. As if in a position to say, “I surrender!” Maybe this is a favorite pose to say, “Carry me!”. Their short upper limbs seem to flail helplessly. This is what I mean.

Returning to the photo prompt, would I carry a baby raccoon? No. As cute as it looks, I don’t think its safe to touch wild animals. I got scratched on my finger by a kitten once and my nail was slightly displaced. I became cautious after that.

  1. I have to say that I would be very tempted to pick up a baby raccoon if I saw it! I often wondered about stuffed animals that the limbs don’t move at all, like they are stuffed too much to even bend! Thanks for participating in Simply 6!
