a friend once called me effervescent. i had no idea what it meant at the time.
a co-worker that recently left said he’d miss my bubbly personality.
i ran into a woman at a local coffee shop who said to her friend about me, “she always has such a sunny disposition!”
i’m glad these moments happen because they outweigh folks who know that i bike every day, all year and say (because the wind may have picked up or it’s sleeting a little), “you’re going to hate it out there.”
of course, i’m not going to hate it. i don’t hate anything, and i’m sorry that you’re so negative that you feel like you have to push your sad and grumpy attitude on someone who is clearly prepared to bike in a little wind or rain.
grow a pair, wouldya?
*edited to add that i’ve now also been described as frustratingly nice.
