I’ll take a dispassionate neutral 2022.
And I thought Lemont was the killjoy!
Clyde is also too content about some things he shouldn’t be content about.
Habitual social verbalizations like saying, “Good Morning” and “How are you doing?” might seem meaningless to young people, but such things are the human equivalents of dogs tentatively wagging their tails.
And a happy MMXXII to you!
If you were the subject of the story, would you be happy to be content, or would it depend on which syllable is emphasized?
Being content is a form of happiness, and that is entirely relative and subject to one’s perspective…. unless of course you’re reached the ultimate of misery, such as about to die in pain from cancer, or you’re being tortured in some 3rd world jail, or about to die of starvation. In the words of Indian mystic Meher Baba: “don’t worry, be happy”.
He ain’t wrong. Gird your loins, folks.
For the past 2 years, my holiday sign off has bee Merry Christmas and a HEALTHY New Year.
Reminds me of good line from a BBC radio comedy. “When I was in America I tried to go along with the customs. A guy wished me a Good Day. I had a bad day, so I’m suing him.”
He’s not demanding you have a happy year, Clyde. He’s wishing you one. Don’t go picking fights.
Clyde’s realism makes some people uncomfortable. I’m not one of them.
