Regally Blonde

The lass with whom I attended the prom and I disagreed on several things. One of which was whether I was suitable romantic material for her. Another was my philosophical outlook. She claimed that I was a pessimist. I argued that I was a cynic and it only looked like pessimism next to her Pollyannaish optimism. (Can you believe she chose not to date a sweet talker like me?)

George Carlin said something like “Inside every cynic is a disappointed idealist”. I certainly had a certain amount of pragmatism demanded by my survival, but at heart I think I am an idealist. And my childhood was rather disappointing. So if I was a cynic then I think I came by it honestly.

Oh, and it turns out that high school is easy for hot blondes. Go figure.
