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.
