Winnie's Gender

Written by Shannon Leigh

Recently Matt and I had the following conversation:

Scene: Matt is giving Ruby a bath and showing her a Winnie the Pooh picture book while I am in the living room

Matt:  What's the little pink guys name?
Me: You mean Piglet?
Matt: oh, so that's what that is…
Me:  WHAT did you think he was?
Matt: I don't know, a rat or something.
Me: Sigh….
Matt:  Do you know what Winnie is?
Me:  What do you mean?
Matt:  You know, the Pooh.
Me:  I know who you are talking about.  What do you mean what is Winnie the Pooh.  He's a bear.
Matt: I know he's a bear but is he a boy or a girl?
Me: Uh, he's a boy…
Matt:  Hmm, has that been confirmed?

I have to admit that I find his complete and utter ignorance of Winnie the Pooh a little charming.

On a side note aren't my anniversary flowers lovely?

Ruby seems to think so.
