Ooooh La-Laa Offensive Optimisim

Its Day 15 of the A to Z Blog Challenge which means its the letter O.

Now we normally associate this letter with the Big O but that is an entirely different post and wouldn't really fit in with my Mottos versus Insults theme.  So today's Motto is

Optimisim

I wish I was more optimistic and yes, this is a word that I would ideally want to be used when someone describes me but, unfortunately I am more of a Realist.  I wouldn't go so far as to say I'm a pessimist, but I believe that if I expect the worst, I won't be dissapointed.  It's kinda worked for me so far, but I really wish I could see the glass half full.  Know what I mean?  I guess I shouldn't wish something I'm not, right? 

I'm not your bubbly giggly-girl.  In fact, I wasn't a giggly girlie-girl, even as a teenager.  I was always sullen and took myself very seriously.  I thought I knew everything but now that I'm all "grown up", I don't take my self seriously at all anymore.  In fact sarcasm is my modus operandi and humour is my medicine.  I have lots of positive energy, just not in the ditsy bubbly kinda way...


 

It was hard to find an insult starting with the letter O.

Growing up had that impact on me as well--from serious to not too much joking.

Nicely done with the O.

I probably lean more towards the optimistic. Sorry, that's just me.

My husband calls himself a realist. I call him a pessimist. He can be depressing to be around some days.

I thought I would get more and more cynical with age, but actually it's been the opposite. I have no idea why.

The Greek one, isn't that a high five?

David Macaulay said...

being half Scottish myself I'd say the Scots don't do optimism much

An optimist myself, a rather careful one, but never the less

Is...is that a CLERKS 2 animated image?! Day = Made.

Wow, would never have said you are not an optimist. You are always so funny, but I suppose pessimists can be funny too!! I am constantly getting 'surprised' when Americans show me two fingers all the time. Do they not realise they're swearing at me??! Plus all the fanny talk!

Mel said...

I'm definitely a Realist/Pessimist and always have been. Great post!
