On Trying To Maintain Optimism
Scene: in the locker room of the gym last Monday. Cranky old lady enters.
Lady: [grumbling] Another Monday, another cold day…at least today I didn’t have to wear my boots, but it’s still scarves and hats and [blahblahblah GRUMBLE]
Me: [trying not to be annoyingly cheery post-workout] Well, there’s always hope for next Monday!
Lady: The way this winter has been, we’ll probably have another foot of snow next Monday!
Me, in my head: Yeah, good luck with your sad life where winter lasts forever.
Me, in my head, a week later: OH GOD, IS CRANKY OLD LADY ACTUALLY RIGHT ON THIS ONE? sdflkhjdsaflkhsa
