Okay, for anyone still interested, the medals were MESA medals. I won them by helping build and use a prosthetic arm, and talking and writing about said arm. Find out more about MESA here.
Let’s see… I’ll post some sock monkey or Sylvanian story…
These are all really old… from like, Christmas time. Anyways, it’s Mivsie and her friend Lily going to the park and then thinking about watching movies.
I actually have tons of new monkeys and sock animals who need to be introduced. Most of them belong to the Society of Special and Abnormal Sock Monkeys, which is partly an association of sock monkeys with rare conditions and birth defects (the rejects, if you will) who live together and help each other out. They all have back stories. Sometimes I’ll be at a friend’s house (actually, one friend in particular, the one who owns Lily and Kat) and I’ll see a sad little sock monkey sitting by itself. Maybe it’s missing an ear, or it has a strange parasitic twin. Whatever the problem, I ask my friend if I can take the monkey home. Usually, she says, “Okay!” or “Sure!” so they come live with me. She still gets to see them, but they have better lives.
By doing this, I am not trying to make fun of disabled people, or making big deals about ‘poor little socks stuffed with cotton who are missing legs’ or anything, I just think it’s fun and I like having them around, not only for diversity, but because they are awesome! :3
Bye and see you soon!
