I was in this wayside inn up in the Alps and during the night a bear broke in and climbed up to the floor where me and my friends were sleeping. All of us piled out of our rooms and stood aghast on the balcony encircling the common room and the bear came roaring toward us and I was closest! Me! And apparently the bear tooking a liking to me and I fell down as it approached and took me in its arms. I lifted my hands palm out to feebly fight back but one of my friends (you, King Rat?) said No, that will only make him mad so I did not strike out. And the bear snuffed at me and stuck its tongue in my ear.
