[Anarchy In The Museum]

Like all the stories on this website, this is based on another true event.

Last weekend we spent an afternoon at The Louvre, tired, over heated, so my Polar Bear decided to take his shoes off.

A nice French service lady who was sitting next to me stared at him, and me,
then to my very amusement she chose to yell at my direction:

“He has to wear his shoes!”

“Yes mom.” Polar Bear replied, finally putting his shoes back on:

“But why do people have to wear shoes in a museum anyway? Who made the rules?”

This is my Polar Bear, there are no other bears like him. 🙂
