Quotable

Yesterday was A. A. Milne's birthday. Hence:

"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.

--A. A. Milne (but I can't remember which book it's from!)

  2. I mentioned to you that I am currently listening to an excellent recording of his detective novel, "The Red House Mystery", a free download from Librivox.com. Am about halfway through and am thoroughly enjoying it.
