As Ted's and Bobble's time at the Suburban Veg Plot approached its end, Ted asked if we could have a night out to round off the week. I eventually relented, but said it had to be something quiet and local - maybe a quick drink and spot of dinner. Bears need their boundaries and a firm hand is always best.
Which is how we ended up at a gig at the O2 Academy in Islington.
Ted, being a bit of a music hound, scrambled straight up on stage during the Zoey van Goey sound check despite a distinct lack of access all areas laminates around his neck.
As the gig began, no-one at first seemed to spot Ted hidden at the back of the stage, watching the band closely like some kind of ursine R&R scout. But his moment of glory was yet to come.
And later, when sneaking into the 'after party', he revealed himself to be a complete groupie by flirting shamelessly with Kim from Zoey van Goey.
Definitely time to go home now Ted - and no, she's not coming with you.
