On the weekend in the middle of June 2013, Funshine Bear, Cheer Bear, Share Bear and Grumpy Bear appeared onstage for "A Care Bears Dance Party" at Sesame Place in Langhorne PA.
Even as a small child, my favorite Care Bear was Grumpy. I am not making this up. Three year old me knew that no place could be smiles and hugs all the damn time – even the land of Care-A-Lot. Funshine Bear and Lots-A-Heart must have been delusional. Grumpy knew how to keep it real. Sometimes your day gets real shitty, and no amount of Care Bear staring is going to snap you out of it. Like today. Today has just been bad. Not tragic or horrible, but just really crappy. So in honor of Grumpy Bear, this post is going to keep it real because I just don’t have anything positive to say right now.
