I have found myself texting a coworker a lot lately. We have come up with our own sort of language, tonight I was going to text him TTFN (ta ta for now, so very Tigger) and it brought something up out of my past.
My ex husband used to throw 2 insults at me: one, I was like my mother (not true) and that I'm like Eyore (ho hum). Both to me hurt and he knew it. I am very independent and can handle things on my own (unlike my mother). I don't think I'm as ho-hum as Eyore. But, both have stayed with me.
I called my coworker. I asked him if I am like Eyore. He said absolutely not and I told him that he is more like "Pooh". He asked me to never refer to him and "pooh" in the same sentence ever again, he thinks of himself more as "Tigger". After consideration I emailed him, ok, no Pooh, more like Rabbit.
Do we all want to be Tigger? Do we need a part of us that is so carefree and uneffected by our worlds that we just "bounce" throught life?
What Pooh character are you most like, and why?
