ok YOU try to read this without laughing.

Ahnna had a Winnie the Pooh book with multiple storied in it.  Tonight Ahnna and Daddy were going to read… then there was a line that made Nathan laugh hard enough he was done reading.  Thinking how infantile he was being I took the book and began to read aloud to Ahnna… then both of us were laughing so hard I couldn’t breathe and both of our eyes were watering while Ahnna was trying to figure out what was wrong with her parents.

I think the key is reading it out loud … and MAYBE feeling a bit silly anyway.

One day as Winnie the Pooh stood on the old wooden bridge that crossed the river that ran through the Hundred-Acre Wood, he dropped a fir cone into the water.

Pooh watched it disappear then reappear on the other side of the bridge.  Then he dropped two cones.  “I wonder which will come out first.”

Well, as Pooh quite expected, the big one came out fist and the little one came out last.

And that was how Pooh invented the game called “Pooh Sticks,” even though he began with fir cones.

Not long after that. Pooh and Piglet, Rabbit, and Roo were all playing Pooh Sticks together.  Rabbit recited the rules.

“All right now.  The first stick to pass all the way under the bridge wins.  Now on your marks… get set… go!”

Pooh anxiously waited to see which stick would come out first.

“I see yours, Piglet”

Roo noted it was the big grey one.

Yes quite unrefined humor, but I deal with poo all day.  You can’t tell me that the author, who’s target is young children, does not understand that young parents deal with poo all the time.  What do you expect us to think when we read “Pooh Sticks.”

The Perfect Man I’m not really complaining, just never know if I’m doing it right.
