euphemism of the day. or year.

after a particularly animated rant about how a particular thing should be handled this afternoon, which sounded oh so very elegant and logical to me, a colleague smiled at me and quietly shook her head.

i asked her what she was smiling at, she replied,”you’re so cute when you’re being naive.”

which gave me pause while i thought for a minute and shot back, “well, now i know why i’m so frigging bummed out half the time. it’s that my expectations are way up here (holding hand above head) and what actually occurs is down here (holding hand below knees). it’s the chronic and debilitating disappointment of it all.”

she smiles again, “oh no, it just that you are not necessarily constrained by reality. and that’s a good thing.”

mmmm. not sure about that.
