Jenny: The Power of Un-Positive Thinking

Lani and I were in the living room the other day:

 

ME: I’m getting discouraged.  I can’t eat anything, I can’t smell anything, and pretty soon I’m not going to be able to see anything.  This sucks.

LANI: You don’t know that.  You can do anything.  I bet you don’t lose your sight at all.  And you can eat lots of stuff, you’re making all those new recipes–

ME: Oh, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD.  Are you ever not chipper?  Is there ever a time you’re not upbeat and happy?  DOES THE CHIPPERNESS NEVER END?

ALASTAIR (on the other side of the living room giving sub-q to our terminal dog): Snerk.

LANI: Okay, FINE.  YOU’RE GONNA GO BLIND AND NEVER EAT CHOCOLATE CHIPS AGAIN!

ME: THE HELL I AM.  I’M JENNIFER GODDAMN CRUSIE AND I CAN DO ANYTHING!

LANI: Oh.  That does work better.

ME: Yeah.  I”m not sure what that says about me, though.

ALASTAIR (still on the other side of the living room giving sub-q to our terminal dog): Snerk.

 

Thank God I have sisters.  And Alastair.
