Conrad asks: Is pessimism more realistic than optimism?
This is the point when people start talking about glasses being half empty or half full. Too late. I’ve drunk it. Though I know where there’s more. Which means… Dunno.
But why talk about glasses when there are pies to consider. Doesn’t just looking at that fans flames of optimism in your stomach?
And sure – it may seem like the summer in Britain is fit only for ducks and Noah. But whatever the weather, don’t forget it’s swimsuit season! Doesn’t that thought and the picture below cheer you up?
(Hey, if they can do it, we all can. That’s gotta be grounds for a tiny little smile.)
So which is more realistic – optimism or pessimism? Depends how long you wait. We’ll all be a long time dead. Though depending on your views on the afterlife, that could be grounds for celebration. So what can you do? Hope for the best and plan for the worst?
I choose to face the music. And dance.
(Probably best if everyone faces the other direction. My dancing is not a pretty sight.)
