I’m in and out of stores all day long. One of the things we all comment on is how hot it is. It’s probably the safest thing to talk about now a-days, but if you know me, it’s just how I get a conversation started.
Me: Dang! It’s hot.
Dairy Dude: It is. (pause) I never complain about how hot it is anymore.
Me: Oh? Why is that?
DD: Moved here from Arizona…it’s ALWAYS hot there. So I don’t complain about how hot it is here.
Me: We do choose to live here don’t we? If we didn’t like it, we’d move right?
DD: Maybe. Or we’d just bitch about it.
That’s how I’m feeling right now, in a nut shell, about our country. We’re just bitchen’ about it. It makes me hot and tired! We all need to be more like Dairy Dude and just stop complaining.
I have no idea what to do about it. Telling people to shut up hasn’t gotten me very far. Sharing stuff on FB with my friends is well…pointless. I’m thinking about protesting, but it’s just too hot!
So, here’s what I have been doing. Smiling! A Lot!
It’s freaking people out! One of the Coke dudes went home and told his wife about me. “It’s the craziest thing you’ve ever seen! She is Always in a great mood and she has the biggest smile on her face all the time. I don’t know if I trust her, but I like being around her.”
There it is people! That’s what I’m doing about it. It’s a start. What are you doing?
Bitchen’ about how hot it is?
