The moment before honey...

"Well," said Pooh, "what I like best," and then he had to stop and think. 
Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do,
there was a moment just before you began to eat it
which was better than when you were,
but he didn't know what it was called. 
~A.A. Milne

Isn't this the truth?! The anticipation can be even better than the actual act!?

Or maybe BETTER isn't the right word. But it is something to be enjoyed all on its own.

Like unwrapping a present. Shaking it, looking at the shape, the weight, seeing it sitting there all wrapped up, hiding what it contains... isn't there something to be said for having the anticipation of what it MIGHT hold?

And the questions and hints! What is it? One piece or more? What color? Breakable? Something for the house? For the bath? My car? What is it?!?!?!

And when you finally tear into it, all the prettyribbon is discarded and the paper shredded, the box ripped open and the tissue tossed aside - well, there it is. And you love it. :)

Ahhhh Pooh. You are a wise bear.
