Quote of last week: optimism versus pessimism

Posted in Apropos of nothing at 3:00 pm by The Lizard Queen

Last week, while our power was still out, EB and I were pondering at what point the power might come back on.  Our ideas reflected our relative viewpoints, which led to the following:

“You know,” EB said, “I think it’s a good thing that you’re an optimist and I’m a pessimist.  I’m like, ‘Oh great, the world is ending,’ and you’re like” — at this point he smiled, raised his eyebrows, and held out his hands as if presenting an offering — “‘Cheeseburger?'”

Sounds about right.  🙂
