My husband said to me the other day something along the lines of, "You're so pessimistic." And while many may view this as quite a mean comment, I have to say, it's true. I can be very negative. Many people wouldn't know this about me; I don't show my dark side to everyone. But now, with this blog, I'm totally outing myself. Now the whole world will know.
When my husband made the above comment, I had just finished telling him how we would probably never have the time or the funds to go on a vacation this year or even next. I know what you're thinking. "Why isn't he jumping to go on vacation with a person who makes statements like that? I know I would be thrilled!" Yes, it's only in hindsight that I realize how unattractive comments like these are.
In all fairness, I come off as a pessimist when really I'm just being a realist. Even my husband will admit that I have way more common sense than he does (I'm not knocking him; he's also a genius). Sometimes, I think to myself, if only he knew that my pessimistic prediction is going to come true (I know, negative). And let me say, I really am going to try to work on this.
If only I had a pessimistic friend....
And I do...Debbie Downer! Below, as a blog tribute to Debbie, I have placed a clip of one of her performances where she spreads her cheer at a birthday party. Somehow, Debbie makes me feel like I'm not really that pessimistic; even Debbie would be a total killjoy for me. So, here's to Debbie for bringing us back to a sobering reality that yes, the world really is coming to an end; it's bound to happen. ;)
