I was asked at MCM London last week why does Bear get second billing in the books title with ‘Lloyd and the Bear’ rather than ‘Bear and the Lloyd’.

I replied saying that it wouldn’t sound so good but then started to question myself…

But then I started to weird myself out. I would never call Lloyd ‘The Lloyd’ and yet I’m totally okay with saying ‘The Bear’? I mean, I totally riffed the title from ‘Smokey and the Bandit’ but man, why am I treating Bear like he’s an object? He’s a living being!

I… Yeah… I have nothing. But for a moment there, last week got super existential at MCM London!

Yup, it’s a short post this week but this has been on my mind all week and I needed to talk about it!

(And no, I’m not going to change the title of the book! I can only do so many updates!)

More soon! Bear hugs!
