"After you complete number 5, you may work with a partner to finish the rest."
"Ms. W?" Q asks.
"What if I skip numbers 1-4 and do number 5 first?"
"Then I’m going to make you sit in the reject chair and do it all on your own," I respond, pointing to the awkward, never used, wrong sized desk that is shoved between a bookshelf and a window.
"Ms. W!!!!" C shoves her hand excitedly in the air.
"Can I sit in the reject chair?"
"You WANT to sit in the reject chair?!"
"Yeah, it’s the closest to the window."
"No no no. Your seat is already the closest one to the window. Do your work."

Eeyore is just one of those characters that you wanna scoop up and hug forever.
One awesome thing about Eeyore is that even though he is basically clinically depressed, he still gets invited to participate in adventures and shenanigans with all of his friends. And they never expect him to pretend to feel happy, they just love him anyway, and they never leave him behind or ask him to change.
And he does feel happy, though. He can be happy. He just doesn’t show it as much as the others do.
There was a whole episode about that - Piglet sees him sitting on a hilltop and thinks he’s sadder than usual, and does all he can to cheer him up. Nothing works and the next day he’s back on the hill, and Piglet apologizes because he thinks in trying to help, he just made him sad again and ”I don’t come here when I’m sad. I come up here because I’m happy.”
There’s just something about that…
