Sometimes Terry says I am Eeyore, in person. Occasionally accused of being a pessimist, I prefer to think of it as realism. Eeyore had many wise things to say. Here are a few of my favorite:
“Good morning, Pooh Bear,” said Eeyore gloomily. “If it is a good morning,” he said. “Which I doubt,” said he.
“Why, what’s the matter?”
“Nothing, Pooh Bear, nothing. We can’t all, and some of us don’t. That’s all there is to it.”
“Can’t all what?” said Pooh, rubbing his nose.
“Gaiety. Song-and-dance. Here we go round the mulberry bush.”
“It’s snowing still,” said Eeyore gloomily.
“So it is.”
“Yes,” said Eeyore. “However,” he said, brightening up a little, “we haven’t had an earthquake lately.”
Eeyore walked all round Tigger one way, and then turned and walked round him the other way.
“What did you say it was?” he asked.
“Ah!” said Eeyore.
“He’s just come,” explained Piglet.
“Ah!” said Eeyore again.
He thought for a long time and then said: “When is he going?”
Eeyore is my kinda guy. We went to Savannah today. Carmina needed some tending from the dealer service department, so Terry took the day and the 2 of us wandered around Savannah, malling and eating and generally piddling the day away. He found a coffee cup with Eeyore’s image on it, and the quote “good morning, if it is a good morning, which I doubt.” Now I have a new cup!
When I was 4 or 5, my aunt gave me a stuffed Eeyore, which I loved with all my heart and still have. I even still have the button-on tail, which considering all things, is pretty remarkable.
Is there a cartoon character who resembles you?
