Oh Bother

January 18th is Winnie the Pooh Day. Winnie is a bear that I grew up with as a child, and is the only character I know to often be named by what he is and not what his name is. It's "Winnie the Pooh" not "Pooh the Winnie". Besides, 'Pooh' was the swan that Christopher saw. Sigh... I guess now is not the time for semantics. For today is a day to celebrate to undoubtably brilliant series that Winnie the Pooh and all his friends in 100 Acre Woods have used to bring delight into several generations of children, and to make sure the legacy does not die. I know for a fact that my future possible children will most certainly know him, as should yours. He is a bear that I relate to in many senses, including but not limited to our thoughts on conversation and food as seen in this quote by him: “It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like 'What about lunch?'" Speaking of lunch, I skipped breakfast today and there is a rumbly in my tumbly. I go now to solve this problem. Oh and probably re-read some Winnie the Pooh books.

Thanks for reading!
