Remember Winnie the Pooh and the "useful pot?"
When I was a kid, I loved that story:
Pooh doesn't know what to bring Eeyore for his birthday. He finally settles on the idea of bringing Eeyore his empty honey jar, because it could serve as a very useful pot:
"At this point Eeyore becomes quite excited, because he has just spotted something very interesting indeed. He tells Pooh that his balloon will fit into the pot! Pooh says no, and explains that balloons are much too big to go into pots, and what Eeyore should do with a balloon is hold it and...
But Eeyore says that his balloon is different, and he picks it up with his teeth, and puts it into the pot - and it fits beautifully! So he takes it out again, and puts it in again, and takes it out again, and puts it in again.
- "So it does!" said Pooh. "It goes in!"
- "So it does!" said Piglet. "And it comes out!"
- "Doesn't it?" said Eeyore. "It goes in and out like anything."
Wishing you all "Many Happy Returns of the Day."
