I do know a few of the people who are bummed today. Like the lady who didn't get to be on city council. Oh, and maybe this guy.
Now, if you were him, then you'd have a reason to be grouchy. ($752 million. Holy crap! I'd be in a foul mood, too.) If you find yourself feeling kinda grumpy, or if you're Mitt, then, I have some friendly advice.
1- Exercise. It gets your endorphins going. I don't know what those are. Sounds kinda like dolphins. But, hey, dolphins are happy. So, it's got to be good.
2-Sing. Sing a song. Sing out loud. Sing out strong. Can you just hear Karen Carpenter's voice? No? Then you're too young. Look her up. Her voice will make you smile.
3-Eat some chocolate. And, not that dark stuff. It may be 'good for you' but so is broccoli. Have some of the fattening kind. With nuts. Or peanut butter. Or caramel. If you wash it down with diet Coke, it cancels out the calories.
4-Look at pictures of cute little animals. Like this one. It's my dog, Patrick. Cutest dog. Ever.
5- Watch a funny video. This one is hilarious. I dare you not to laugh.
6-I would suggest retail therapy, a nice shopping trip can really perk me up. But, if you're Mitt, and you've just spent millions, maybe you should skip this one.
7- Last of all- be grateful. Make a list of your blessings. How appropriate that it's that time of year. Life is good and we have so much to be thankful for. Be hopeful, be happy.
