I am usually not a soft-toy person. I do not buy soft toys like most people do, because I find that they collect dust easily, a little childish and takes up unnecessary space. However I do have one and only one soft toy, this green piggy with a nice-checkered ribbon and checks inside its ears too. I don't even have a name for him. I got him 15 years ago from Queen Victoria Market in Melbourne. I don't know why, but I was just attracted to this piggy. I do have a soft spot for piggies. Maybe I shall call him Victoria, but he looked more like a he, doesn't he? her? it?
