'Christopher Robin was home by this time,
because it was the afternoon, and he
was so glad to see them that they stayed
there until very nearly tea-time, and then
they had a Very Nearly tea, which is one
you forget about afterwards, and hurried
on to Pooh Corner, so as to see Eeyore before
it was too late to have a Proper Tea with Owl.'
A.A. Milne, The House at Pooh Corner
