The honey wasn’t going to jump into the honey pot by itself, and someone was going to have to go to the bee’s nest and get it. The problem was that after three days of trying, Pooh was no closer to convincing the bees that he was one of them. To make matters worse it had started to rain. Stuffed bears are not known for being water-proof and soggy bears are not pleasant to be around. It was precisely for these reasons that Christopher Robin volunteered to be a bee for the day. That’s what friends do!
