Ben Talks to a Dinosaur

Ben: "Hello Mr. Dino! Are you happy?"

Dino: "Well Ben, I'm feeling a little old these days. Lots of people stop and laugh at me which is cool. They touch me just to make sure I'm not scary but they just pass on by and never talk to me like you do."

Ben: "Well, Mr. Dinosaur...may I call you Dino?"

Dino: "Of course my little friend!"

Ben: "People are afraid of me too. I don't have sharp teeth and I'm certainly not going to eat them. I actually think you are pretty cool!"

Dino: "Well thank you Ben. I sometimes have children afraid of me too. I can't hurt them because I don't have real teeth. I have bright colors and just sit here wanting little folks like you just to touch me and pet me. Me and the rest of the toys talk about things late at night when no one is around. I wish more little friends like you hung around here."

Ben: "I'm so sorry Mr. Dino. I think you are really cool. I'd hug your neck if I knew I wouldn't drool on you. My Mom and Dad worry about things like that. I like you a lot and you'd make a great friend. I just don't know where we'd put someone as big as you."

Dino: "That's okay, Ben. You made me happier than I've ever been. I can't wait to tell my buddies in the store tonight what a neat little friend I've met. Please stop by anytime you come to the mall. Me and you are friends forever! I'll see you next time!"

Ben: "It's a deal!"

Friends come in all shapes and sizes don't they? And some of the bestest friends are those that are invisible.

Ben looks like he has found a good friend in Dino.

I wish we had the camera going. Ben sat and talked to Dino for 15 minutes.
