Some Zs have all the luck (but hope others do too)

On this optimistic day, not only in America but across much of the world, LOM has found a quiz that seems to be appropriate. And I wasn’t surprised to discover that I am a very lucky person

You Are 89% Thankful

You’re an incredibly thankful person, and everyone around you feels very appreciated.

You inspire people to be more optimistic, forgiving, and grateful.

As far as I’m concerned that’s true and I hope you do feel appreciated. I don’t aspire to inspire however, that would be a bit presumptuous.

Oh, I got a brief but spontaneous outburst of applause (from about three people) this morning. Welcoming the audience to the first lecture of this year, I hoped that they were well and, if they’d had any of the illnesses going round over the past few weeks, they had made a quick recovery. “I’ve been lucky and not been ill at all,” I added. “I put great faith in the antiseptic effect of good red wine.” So, it seems, do some of the gentlemen in the audience.

    Well, presumably some days one may be thankful, or thankful about some things, but not others, thus making an average level of thankfulness over the year.

    Me, I nver suffer from mood swings. Ho ho.

    And there are degrees in awareness of thankfulness. I take a lot less for granted than I used to.

    Ho ho indeed, Dave. Not at all.
