This is the tale of Otter and Seal.
They were introduced at the land of Trader Joe’s.
Their meeting was unceremonious and unspectacular. Still, Otter and Seal quite quickly became friends. With bonds composed of cookies and mushrooms and outdoor adventures, their friendship was sure to last.
After some time, they decided to live together. The two created a cozy nest in which to hold their lives.
And collected a diverse and happy family tree.
Otter liked to redecorate Seal’s portion of the nest as often as possible.
They enjoyed cooking and gardening.
Otter and Seal fell in love with many people who entered into their lives. With these people, they shared a great many adventures.
They had friends and strangers alike stay in their home. And upon such occasions forced said people to create self portraits.
Otter and Seal slowly crept into each other’s families.
They went to the woods whenever they got a chance. Hiking and camping were their favorites!
They got dirty.
They got fancy.
They got silly.
…and sometimes even sillier.
Otter and Seal delved into their city.
They loved taking road trips. So they took to the open road.
They explored neighboring areas.
And then they explored even further. Far across the country to strange destinations. They saw great expanses of nature.
They didn’t look at explosions.
They even went off to explore other countries!
Music was much adored by both. So they sought out good music.
And even made some of their own!
They did a lot together. But they accomplished great things on their own, too. For instance:
Otter became a Firefighter/EMT.
and Seal built a house.
Perhaps most importantly, Otter and Seal enthusiastically ate immense piles of pizza and sushi. As often as possible.
Yes, Otter and Seal were a good team. But eventually, as these things do, their lives took them separate ways.
And now they are off to have their own adventures.
