It all depends
“Now then, Pooh,” said Christopher Robin, “where’s your boat?”
“I ought to say,” explained Pooh as they walked down to the shore of the island, “that it isn’t just an ordinary sort of boat. Sometimes it’s a Boat, and sometimes it’s more of an Accident. It all depends.”
“Depends on what?”
“On whether I’m on the top of it or underneath it.”
― A.A. Milne
I just love Pooh. When I read this quote, it made me smile. Many things in my life, from computers to cars to cooking, are sometimes more of an Accident. It all depends.
On this busy Monday, I wish you a day that’s relatively free of such Accidents. But if you do have one (or even a few), I hope they are mild enough to remind you of Pooh’s philosophical sense of humor, so you don’t give up on whatever Boat of yours may have capsized today. Tomorrow it may be a Boat again, and you may be on the top of it. It all depends!
