Yevgeny

June 18, 2006

Many years ago, Orange Bear’s paternal grandfather, Yevgeny, defected from a Russian circus troupe when they traveled through Canada.

“You know, like the ballet dancer,” says Orange Bear’s father.

“Who?” asks Orange Bear.

Papa Orange Bear wrinkles his nose — just like his son — and says, “Maybe it was OK for that Baryshnikov character, but Dedushka always drew a line at wearing tutus. He said, ‘A bear is not a bear who wears a tutu.’ So he wore a hat.”

“I don’t think Baryshnikov wore a tutu.”

“Whatever.”
