In which Pooh is always getting into jams … or honey

Yesterday an old friend from college dropped by.  Somewhere in the course of the conversation we started discussing a mutual friend.  Mostly what we discussed was that no matter how many things were going well in this friend’s life, they were always unhappy about something.


I pointed out that everyone has someone like this, an “Eeyore” in his or her life.  She looked at me and said, “I think you’re right” (NOTE TO READER: DUH! OF COURSE I’M RIGHT!!!)


“Yeah,” I continued “ and it doesn’t even make any sense because Eeyore is hanging out in the Hundred Acre Wood with all his good friends.  I mean, even WHEN he loses his tail somebody always finds it.” (Good point right???)


Fast forward to last night and Keely and I were driving to get a frozen yogurt.


Keely:             you know, I was listening to your conversation yesterday


Me:                  which one?


Keely:             about “everyone having an Eeyore in their life”


Me:                  it’s totally true.  My mother was an Eeyore


Keely:             not that part


Me:                  which part?


Keely:             the part about hanging out with that gang in the Hundred Acre Wood


Me:                  what about it?


Keely:             I think those guys would drive me nuts


Me:                  how so?


Keely:             I mean, look at Owl and Rabbit


Me:                  hmmmm…yeah


Keely:             I would rather hang out with a stupid person that people who think they’re smart but they aren’t


Me:                  that’s true …


Keely:             and Tigger?


Me:                  Tigger is awesome


Keely:             I think I’d have to be wasted to hang out with Tigger


Me:                  Tigger would be so much fun to party with though


Keely:             but not if you’re sober.  He’d drive you nuts


Me:                  that’s a good point.  He’s a bit hyper


Keely:             yeah


Me:                  … and Pooh is always getting into jams


Keely:             you mean honey?


Me:                  what?


Keely:             Pooh is always getting into honey!


Me:                  hahaha….right.  He’s always getting into jams getting into honey


Keely:             I made a great joke!


Me:                  I mean, first he gets stuck in Gophers hole


Keely:             … and then he got stuck in the Honey Tree


Me:                  well, he is a bear of very little brain


Keely:             … and Piglet’s so damn timid


Me:                  yeah, he’s looking down


Keely:             so ya see? I don’t know how much fun it would be in the Hundred Acre Wood with those guys.


Me:                  … and Christopher Robin is probably quite annoying ya know?


Keely:             so I don’t think it would be so much fun


Me:                  except for partying with Tigger


Keely:             do you realize that we just spent a 10 minute drive discussing which characters in the Winnie the Pooh World we’d want to be friends and hang out with?


Me:                  wow.  That’s impressive


Keely:             yeah, what does that say about us?


Me:                  that our life is fucking awesome.


And so it does.  What do you guys talk about with your 22 year old kids???

    Pooh would be the guy you blame everything on, Tigger would be the friend that knows of all the awesome parties. Eeyore is the manic-depressive. I fired an Eeyore once. Hell, I fired, like, nine Eeyores.

    My last conversation with my 22 year old cousin (I’m 13 years older) was about how ridiculously stupid she was not to get a picture taken with John Cho (the actor) when she picked him up at the airport and then proceeded to have dinner and drinks with him before taking him to his hotel. She’s working with the Obama campaign and he was in town for some events. Her job was shuttling him around. I would’ve be ALL OVER taking pictures with him and posting them all over Facebook, but apparently she’s more mature than me. :) So… just a little bit different of a conversation. :)

    My 22 year olds are still 8 and 5. I’ll letchaknow when we get that far. But I hated Pooh as a kid. Now, I like him. But I think I totally responded in seriousness the way you guys were responding in jest to those characters.
