Alexa and Gideon entered the living room to watch parts of The Great Pumpkin, a Peanuts cartoon (which is also an annual Alexa tradition). I was inspired to write this post after watching Linus (Lucy’s little bro) hold on tightly to his infamous “security blanket.” Gideon too has one of those. But it comes in the form of a Mickey Mouse plush toy.
Try to take Mickey away from Gideon and you’ll soon encounter his Kung Fu grip. Seconds later, he’ll extend his arm out to you as if handing Mickey over. It’s like he’s saying, “Oh, did you want to temporarily hold on to Mickey? Well, here you go.” But beware, as you reach out for the plush toy, he’ll either pull it away quickly or hold on to it for dear life. Here are pics of Gideon and his “security blanket.”
