Here’s my story inspired by twaddle

She is one hundred years old and remembering the first time she voted, somewhere around 1939.  She had listened to the candidate’s speeches on the radio and read articles in the newspapers about what they were going to do for the people of this nation,  studied the excellent proposals, and listened to all the admirable promises then voted for who she thought would be the best to lead the country.  Now she is in a voting booth once again considering today’s candidates and their speeches, proposals, promises, and lots of media hype that contradicts everything and can’t help thinking she’s heard it all before.  She’s been around a long time and has had a good life in spite of who she may or may not have voted for and whether or not they did what they said they would do. Really, it seems to her they simply like to hear themselves talk and most of what they say is just twaddle.

“A positive attitude may not solve all your problems,
but it will annoy enough people
to make it worth the effort.”
Hern Albright

People with a negative attitude annoy me,
but I never considered that my positive attitude might annoy others.
It seems strange to me that a positive attitude would be annoying.

Are you a negative or positive person?
What makes you think or feel the way you do?
Are you annoyed when others have a different attitude than you?
Why?

Here is my story this week

They were sitting outside a small cafe enjoying their morning coffee and donuts while people watching. Well, he was people watching while she read her book and ignored his obvious enjoyment in watching all the young women. In the beginning, there had been many arguments between them about his wandering eyes but now she paid no attention. He was a good man and she knew he loved her and wouldn’t do anything to hurt her so, she let him have his fun. Anyway, he wasn’t looking to buy something new he was just browsing.

Adultescent…

This cat makes me think of someone I knew.
Even in middle age his interests and actions were like a teenager.
I think he was afraid of growing old.
He didn’t know growing up doesn’t mean becoming like an old codger.
I guess he thought to be an adult meant boredom and monotony.
He didn’t know he could be mature,
have fun and play, be youthful and adventuresome.
He was an adultescent.
It was kinda sad.
