Last night we went to some friends house. Nice time. There is one gal, who I like, but she's negative and bummed out all the time. We all have those times - if it goes on for months, then perhaps a trip to the doctor to rule out depression is in order. No, this lady is just on a bummer all the time. It's her personality. Plus, she is an ultra-conservative, so every chance she gets, she brings politics or Christianity into the mix. I'm really uncomfortable with that. She is also into conspiracy theories...and lives for fake news.
I strongly dislike the way things are today- where people are constantly viewing their lives through their political party-lines. Oh come on - Obama has nothing to do with our high electricity bills. Leave the man alone! She had her cataracts removed - I mentioned that's what I will have done after I turn 65 - when my Medicare kicks in. That's what my doctor advised me. Oh Lord, it opened up the whole Obamacare and how I probably won't even have Medicare by that time. Wow- good thing I am learning how to turn these people off, or Susie-Sunshine would have me bent over in stomach pain.
I try and talk about other things, non-political or religious but she still wants to be negative.
I know I have had times in my life where I have been on the typical Debby-downer. Usually, when I get that way, I stay home. Or when I have those "People-Bug-Me" Moods. It doesn't matter who they are, or even what they say, when I get into one of those moods, it's best I don't even get out of bed.
Thankfully, I don't have too many of those, like I used to.
I do miss the days when we could get together, share intelligent conversation, and some good laughs!
