Too Old for Stuffed Animals?

Over Labor Day weekend, I visited by best friend Sophia, who is currently attending seminary with her husband. Given it was their summer vacation, they took me to see all sorts of touristy things, including a visit to the local U.S. Mint. At the end of the tour, we made the obligatory pass through the gift shop. Sophia pointed out a discount bin full of tiny plush eagles, and I had to have one. Being in my 30's, I could not justify buying a stuffed animal for myself, but then Sophia pointed out the loop on its head. YES! It's not a toy; it's a Christmas ornament!

When I got home from my trip, I proudly unveiled the Christmas ornament to K and gushed about its extreme cuteness factor. K glanced up from his video game and said "Hmm," but otherwise showed little interest. Guess I shouldn't have been fooled because look at what I found the next morning:

Haha, that's what K said. He pointed out that even his mom buys the occasional cute plushie at age 60.
