The Juanita Poole Story

Dan quotes some woman named Juanita Poole every now and then. I figured she was some actress or FOX pundit or Weather Channel babe or something.

Then, the other morning, he said, "As Juanita Poole, would say, 'It's a blustery day!'"

"No, Winnie the Pooh says that!" I responded.

And then it hit me.

He's been saying "Winnie the Pooh" all along. He says "Winnie the Pooh." I hear "Juanita Poole."

There is no such person as Juanita Poole. Or if there is, she's not the person Dan has been quoting about blustery days.

Sometimes this deafness thing is actually kind of funny.
