Sarcasm and My Pal Smiley
I have always tried to see the good in people and situations, but I came from a rather negative, cynical family. Of course, that has influenced me and my thinking of myself and my own world, but I tend to encourage others to see beyond whatever the see as their challenge.
I have never come from a yellow smiley face perspective, but from a realistic optimism, if there is such a thing. At least, it makes sense to me.
Coming from my family, I learned to be rather sardonic, which usually got me backhanded. There were times that I did not know what the hell I had said that was so bad. But I think I had a good teacher in my mother.
I never particularly liked Smiley, but that is for another story. Right now, is it not enough I can call him my "pal"?
