I brought it inside and the girls gave it a sniff-over. There wasn't anything exciting about it, they decided. The return address was "Activision/Blizzard". I didn't order anything from them. I knew my daughter was up to something but I had no clue what that could be.
I have him sitting on the printer to the left of the computer. Isn't he adorable? I felt I was kind of beyond the age when a plush would evoke a giggling response from me but I found myself giggling and laughing. He's just so cute. If you know your mythology, a gryphon has the body of a lion and the head and wings of an eagle. In World of Warcraft, if you are Alliance, we use these to fly from point to point. The other faction has a different looking mount. There are a bunch of different colors of gryphons but you're most likely to see the above color the first time your low level self needs to go to another city. Although my character has progressed to where I can fly anywhere, I still like "hopping on the bird" to go from place to place. I can go do a load of dishes or make more tea and let the gryphon take me where I want to go.
The best part about this plush, it comes with an in-game pet.
There are a lot of these kinds of pets you can get in the game. I did not have the little gryphon. When I'm on my personal flying mount, he flies along with me.
Today is my birthday and, as of this typing, I am officially another year older. It's appropriate that this post came out today. Thank you, sweetie. I'm just giddy over my gryphon.
