My little sister gets exasperated when she reads comments to me on Facebook that suggest I have a good outlook on life.
What are you telling these people different from what you tell your family, she yells; you're a bitter sad-sack (I'm paraphrasing because I lack her command of the four-letter word).
Now I have the answer: absolutely nothing!
I have had various medical appointments lately, like Wednesday's echocardiogram to make sure I am healthy enough for the dreaded colonoscopy next month. A friend at work noticed, and at lunch asked if I was OK.
"I'm doomed," I replied. And if that is not what I'd say to my family, I'm a monkey's uncle -- and my nephews and nieces are mostly homo sapiens.
P.S. I love my sister, and I may have put a modest spin on things. She does, however, have a fierce command of four-letter words.
