    My wife and I argue about this all of the time, but I believe you can boil life down to this simple equation:

    Pessimism > Optimism

    Life is hard. I would rather be pleasantly surprised sometimes than disappointed most of the time.

    Probably cranberry cocktail. Real cranberry juice is sour, bitter, and hard to drink straight up. Pomegranate is nearly as bad. Maybe he had a urinary tract infection…

    The beauty of pessimism is that one of two things can happen – things can go as you expect, or you can be pleasantly surprised. Way better than the results of an optimist.

    Aim low – it’s harder to miss.

    Incidentally, I am happy to be working the job I am working. Just sayin’.

    And research has shown that pessimists are “realists.” Pessimists tend to predict things much closer to what is reality than optimists do. Not that they have more fun in life for doing so, or anything like that. Just sayin’ again.

    I’m a juice snob. I hate to admit it, but I am. This means I rarely order juice at restaurants. I’ll get something horribly syrupy and sweet, like a coke, instead. It’s much harder to be disappointed with that. Unless the soda is flat.
