Aren't we all?"Cynicism is the romantic's condom. It prevents unwanted emotions from spilling out all over the place." -- Waiting for God
Not only have I figured this out already, I'm pretty sure that's why I like your work - not because you're cynical but because you're fun cynical, you know? It's easy to just sit around and complain - certainly no lack of things to complain about - but you go the extra mile and throw in a bucket of snark too. :)
I think, given the right set of exterior circumstances, we are no cynical old cusses.
You need to channel Peppermint Patty more maybe?
Better an old cuss than an old coot.Something my aunt once said.
I hope you don't mean that like it's a bad thing.
Nonsense - you just see irritating patterns and it can get frustrating that the patterns are there. You're one of the most hopeful and positive people I know, Val! ^_^
Hey at least you have the chipper exterior.
As the others said...I see this as an endearing trait in your writing. :)
One of us! One of us!
