Not sure that's true either - I never had them either. Too busy living and forging ahead...

RE: Pessimistic? Do these things exist?
I know this will come as a shock to some people, but I'm an optimist Tongue

I will say that I think you can change your outlook on things--if you so desire to do so. You can flip your present way of thinking on its head and condition the way you respond to things in a more positive light. It takes work, but it can happen. Of course, maybe that's just the optimist in me saying that Hobo Big Grin

Actually, the cup is too damn big.

Guess I'm not straight. Damnit. I rather like mid-rangers. So to speak.

RE: Pessimistic? Do these things exist?
I'm optimistic about some things and pessimistic about others but generally I'm a pretty optimistic person. It's funny, but having children made me even MORE optimistic. It's neat to see them looking toward their future and working toward goals. Life goes one. Yeah, kinda cool.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
