Some more from when I was little

When I bought candy (usually Brach's pick-a-mix, sold by weight), I'd get two or three pounds of it and, while it was still seemed an impossibly abundant resource, I would hide a few pieces in different places in my room. Then I would enjoy the bulk of the candy over the next few days, until the supply dwindled and then was gone.

For days, even weeks, later, I would be carrying out my usual existence, maybe looking for something, and I'd find a piece of candy! How thoughtful of me. A present for me from my old self! I was ecstatic. (ju-jubilant?)

C: "Dear Calvin, Hi! I writing this on Monday. What day is it now? Who are things going?
Your Pal, Calvin"
C: My past self is correspongind with my future self.
H: Too bad you can't write back.

Yes, this is a quote I have hanging on my bulletin board. Acutally, it has always reminded me of you for some reason. :)


"One of the advantages of being disorderly is that one is constantly making exciting discoveries."

I hadn't seen that one before. How very apropos!

I think it's clear which of his characters Mr. Milne sympathizes with most. :-)
