  • Looking forward to the past

    I can't remember exactly what I was whining about, but a month or so ago I was telling the one I call my uncle-dad about stuff that was going on.

    Actually, the stuff that was going on was serious stuff, so I wasn't really whining; I was seriously upset. Nevertheless, when I finished he said, "Cheer up! You have the past to look forward to."

    At the time, I attributed his comment to his advanced years and maybe a bit of senility setting in. Or maybe he didn't hear me correctly or was just trying to get me to shut my yap.
