It’s been a while since I wrote my last post in the “Touche” series. So, if you are wondering why I am randomly starting with Touche 4 (like Star Wars), please go back and check out my Touche, Touche 2 and Touche 3 posts for context.
So. With that out of the way – do you remember that I come up with a “word for the year”? Well. The word for 2018 suddenly came to me a couple of days back, totally out of the blue. I shared my word with N and the munchkins (will share with you later), and asked them to come up with their words for the year. N (surprisingly) cooperated immediately, and came up with “optimistic” for his word. “I am going to be more positive and optimistic in the coming year”, N remarked.
Before I could congratulate him on a well-chosen word, little A (who always just happens, in such instances, to be sitting nearby) said (pointing to N’s cup of green tea), “so, Daddy, is the cup half-full or half-empty?” N laughed and said “It doesn’t work like that, babes.” But before he could go any further, little A continued nonchalantly, “Actually, whether the cup is half-full or half-empty depends on what is in the cup.”
Step aside, Jack Handey. Your Deep Thoughts successor has arrived!! 🙂
