“A paranoid is someone who knows little of what’s going on” (William S. Burroughs). This quote by William S. Burroughs describes Piglet, a small and frightened character from Winnie-the-Pooh, perfectly. More often than not, Piglet is remembered for his paranoia, but where does his paranoia stem from? Piglet is also often found walking Pooh through thoughts and actions with a series of questions, but why does he decide this is the best way to teach Pooh about the world? Piglet is derived from two main philosophers: Socrates and Kant. Piglet helps Pooh discover the world on his own through asking questions, just like Socrates, and the pig and the philosopher both believed they truly knew nothing. On the other hand, Piglet chooses to do what is…

The GREATTTT accordion player!” My kitten April was looking at me with joyful eyes as I pretended she was one of my fans in the audience. I stack my teddy bears in a line pretending they were asking me for autographs and listening when I grab my toy accordion and squeeze it back and forth, then eventually it sounded like a song. “Hehe! I’m good!” I laugh to myself. My baby accordion was perfect; it was red, white, and it had little buttons. The music still echoes throughout the house and I then…
“Hey David, it 's me. Are you still coming over tonight to spend the night with me?” my friend Kevin asked.
I glanced anxiously at my mother who had heard the call, and I reassured my answer with her. “Yes, I should be there around 7:00.”
I ran upstairs to my room to finish packing for the night. Toothbrush, toothpaste, clean clothes for the next day, and I was all ready to go. I looked over at my Winnie the Pooh stuffed bear, and initially reached for it, but hesitated. Remembering…
