    “Hallo, Pooh. Thank you for asking, but I shall be able to use it again in a day or two.”
    “Use what?” said Pooh.
    “What we were talking about.”
    “I wasn’t talking about anything,” said Pooh, looking puzzled.
    “My mistake again. I thought you were saying how sorry you were about my tail, being all numb, and could you do anything to help?”
