    I wouldn’t call that “keen” so much as “nasty”.

    Remember the 50s or so when “keen” meant what “cool” came to mean for the hippies?

    We were having a campfire cookout once when I was in cubs when it started to sprinkle. The leader started singing the song: “It ain’t gonna rain no more, no more…”

    When he got to the line: “So how the heck can I wash my neck…” Deluge.

    Pig reminds me of Wade from the ’80s comic “U.S. Acres”. Nothing good happens for both characters despite their nice personalities.

    Indeed life does not care about “doing your best” that is a personal growth thing. Life only cares about “good enough or not good enough”.
