OK ok everybody, line ’em up…
A Mom story:
A few days ago Windy just got done with Mom’s constant mumbling negativity. She feels bad, she can’t think, she is confused and miserable and was expressing these thoughts out loud and over and over whenever she wasn’t asleep and sometimes when she was. So Windy said ‘Mom, just for today let’s not say one single negative thing. It’s bad for your health to go on like this so for today, you’re not going to say anything negative’, to which Mom agreed.
About an hour later she says something that very well counts as negative and then immediately follows this with another negative comment. Windy rolls her head over to look at Mom. Mom squints up like she’s been doing recently, peers out of one eye, gives Windy ‘the face’, shakes her pointing finger at nose level and says ‘two negatives make a positive’.
