IF glasses (aka spectacles)

Bear with me - no seriously don’t leave. I’m sorry about the pun.
 
Ok, so when I was hiking with some friends on the Inca trail in Peru we passed a warning sign with a bear on it. We asked our guide about the bears and he told us they were called spectacular bears.
This filled us with glee. How wonderful is that? And why or what makes it spectacular? Our imaginations filled in the blanks.
So it was with a grain of chagrin I found out it was actually called the spectacled bear – but let’s be honest, in my heart he will always be spectacular.

Sorry for messing up your comment section. My typo altered the comment. So anyway, Aaaaaawwwwww!!! Hahahaha! So cute both the illustrations and the story. It's like my friend telling me that the joke was innoculous, so I told her that I think the joke was more like getting stabbed with an injection than being harmless. To this day she still thinks the word is innoculous, just like some patients of mine asking for a technical shot when they sustained lacerations. Heheheheh! Your illustrations rock!!!
