Just to show you how desperate people are for something positive to read, I got dozens of calls and e-mails about Saturday’s “25 Reasons To Be Happy” story, which included wise nuggets like “Because Dave is still in Van Halen.” Anyway, I appreciate all the response (Lisa from Hercules, I love your messages; I’m just afraid of the day your husband decides it’s not so cute anymore).
I’d also like to thank Ann from San Leandro for her pointing out the one I’d missed “I woke up above ground today and wasn’t eating dirt for breakfast.” Because, as all of us who have eaten dirt first thing in the morning, it’s not the most pleasant meal.
Anyway, it sounds like the subject merits further pondering. It’s only through positive thinking and belief in something (anything) that people get through hard times. If anyone wants to send in more ideas, feel free to e-mail me at email@example.com.
