How many stuffed animal toys might exist at a present-day American town of about 50,000 citizens on Valentine's Day?
ETA: due to what seems to growing into popular demand, the story is here. If you'd like to read the chapter with the stuffed animals when it's uploaded (which may take a while; grad school eats time like whoa), you can either (1) mark this post for follow-up and i'll put a notice here when it's done, (2) leave me your email address (either in comments or at ), (3) add it to your watch list on ff.net if you have an account there.
ETA, 02 May: chapter posted! Thanks everyone!
