Everybody and their dog is familiar with: Is the glass full or half empty? It depends on your perspective. My thought was as long as there is more libation to add in the glass what did it matter. However, I’ve meet a handful of people along the way who are consumed with negativity. Sadly, these folk never have a good day, they never see the silver lining in the face of adversity, and they don’t laugh at their own foibles. Further, they are unable to accept blame for their own mistakes.
Witness the PT Barnum circus in Washington. For the first time in history, only PT knows the truth–everything else is “fake.” Wow! I must be the most stupid person on earth to watch a PT video, which is immediately denied as “fake,” if there’s a backlash. It’s a most curious world.
As most of you know, a week ago I turned 70. Not a number I necessarily wanted to be, but I can’t deny my birth certificate, nor my passport. I can’t call it fake news. It is a fact. Yes, Sue, you’re 70, and the sun is still shining.
Admittedly, I had a tough time turning 70. It was a anchoring moment…until my one of my high school friends posted:
Yep, it’s all in how you look at it. A mere 21 in Celsius. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’ve no desire to be 21 again–50ish perhaps, but not 21. Working all day, staying up late partying all weekend, or squeezing my squashed behind into trendy clothing. But at least I’ve a comeback remark when someone asks, “How old are you?”
“Fahrenheit or Celsius?”
