If it’s Thursday, this must be Thursday.

My dear Readers, I hope you know that I stay up very late thinking about you. Thinking about what will entertain you and give you delight. In that light, this came to me last night. (This one I could have put on Facebook but, kind soul that I am, I decided to save it special for my readers.)

Do you know the difference between an a pessimist and an optimist?

No, not that.

Wrong there too.

C’mon, guys. You can do better than that.

So I won’t keep you guessing, here it is. The difference between a pessimist and and an optimist is: When a pessimist is surprised, it is a good thing. When an optimist is surprised, it is a bad thing.
