It's me, Mr. Bear.
Well I was once pretty famous.
You must have seen me in movies such as the Jungle Book, that was my acting debut and you have to say, what splendid acting right?
I was nominated for a oscar for my role but only narrowly missed out to Mr. Fox from Fantastic Mr Fox. Well that was a bummer.
But still it brought stardom to my life and I got to see the world from the eyes of a celebrity and I must tell you, the world looked pretty amazing.
I got an ad campaign for a honey brand and with that a free supply of unlimited honey.
I used to drink honey, swim in a pool of honey and what not.
It was during one of those ad shoots in Paris when I met future Mrs. Bear.
She was already a star. Everybody was talking about her beauty and her lovely voice and that made me really nervous to even approach her.
But one day I found her sitting alone at the bar, and I thought to myself, if there was ever a day when I have to show my charm, it was today.
I decided to use one of my lines from the jungle book movie and spoke in Baloo's accent, "You better believe it!".
She turned around to face me and when I saw her, she was already smiling and so long story short, your humble narrator is not a bachelor anymore.
But as life usually does, after reaching the heights, the fall was inevitable.
I used to spend all my earnings as they arrive and one day I got to know from my lawyer that I am officially broke now.
So, it was time for me to do this the hard way. I searched for jobs but there weren't many jobs for a lazy bear like me.
I found one at the honey company for which I was. previously doing the ad campaign. Well they didn't had any choice also. Somehow I had to pay for the honey which I was drinking all this while.
The job was to extract the honey from the beehive and collect it. At the end of the day, based on how much I collect, I was to be paid.
Also It turned out they don't pay you if you feel hungry while doing this and then drink whatever you have collected.
So, it was a case of mastering your instincts. Also I have to say Mrs Bear played a big role in this.
She reminded me that if I don't get this one right, she will leave me for good this time.
And so, with the help of these motivating words and a little bit of effort, I started collecting just about enough honey to repay my debts.
Today I am again rich and successful. After working for a long time in that company, I finally bought the company and then decided to cast Mr. Fox for the ad campaign.
I hope he also doesn't know about savings!
