There are people who cry over everything. Everything.
Maybe not literally but still I am sure you get the picture.
If there isn’t a reason to cry then they will invent one. (They are resourceful that way)
They will be crying that they didn’t get tickets at the movies.
And their boss hates ONLY them.
And they look ugly.
And the other guy at the office makes more money for doing much much less.
And their partner does not compliment them.
And if they do then they say the same things and never anything new.
And the dry cleaner is out to cheat them.
And the milk boiled over.
And the chicken got over before they got to it in the buffet line at the wedding.
Their anthem lyrics are ‘Everything bad Always has to happen to me.’
You can follow them like you could Hansel and Gretel.
Except instead of bread crumbs – you will find at regular intervals giant pools of teardrops.
One soggy step after another.
Oh we all have miserable moments. And we all have those days when nothing goes right. And it is ok to get upset once in a while.
But to revel in misery??
Lie down in the misery, flap your hands and legs about and make snow angels – Little untidy wet misery angels.
You can point out all the half full glasses.
And they will convince you drought has begun.
You can point out the bright side all you like.
They will point out an ugly black mole smack bang right in the centre.
I say – Grab those half full glasses and bolt for the door.
I have one tiny little life to live. I can’t go through it soaking wet with someone else’s unstoppable tears.
p.s. If we find a tear harvesting and desalination machine for tears – all those drought stricken countries could have a constant source of water.
