Benefits of cloning

A while back, Charles’ stuffed shark “Sharky” was Polymerized. Luckily, this was discovered during the day before Charles got home and Sharky’s remains were placed in a secure recovery facility. I figured that if Charles forgot about Sharky then we could get on with life. Mom, however, reported that Charles still asked about Sharky now and then. Eventually, since Christmas and Charles’ birthday were approaching, I called the Mall of America and was able to have them ship me a clone of Sharky. It arrived Tuesday, the day before Charles’ birthday. I gave that to Charles, who was very happy to be reunited. The original Sharky then suffered a medical setback and was sent to the great fish tank in the sky. Charles we left in blissful ignorance — he still thinks he just misplaced Sharky.

That was nice of you to get another shark for him. I bet he is glad to have Sharky back again

Yes, he was very happy that we “found” Sharky for him. I was tempted to discover Sharky had been hiding in Charles’ ear the whole time, but I settled for just holding it up and saying “Look what I found”. Charles never did inquire as to where Sharky had been. I guess it’s not the kind of thing you ask about long lost friends who show up again.
