The Inspiration


"What do you like doing best in the world, Pooh?" asked Tigger. 
"Well," said Pooh, "what I like best --" and then he had to stop to think. Because although eating honey was  a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn't know what it was called.

"When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last, "what's the first thing you say to yourself?"
"What's for breakfast?" said Pooh. "What do you say piglet?"
"I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today!"said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully.
"It's the same thing," he said.
