Enough of the gloom.
A New Leaf: I’m embracing my inner Pollyanna, accentuating the positive, looking on the bright side etc.
Seeing how it goes.
My first test: DollFacedGirl asks if she can borrow a pen “For a minute?”
I’m holding a pen in my hand but there is a fraction of a fraction of a second during which I consider saying “No”. It’s not just any old pen after all; it’s my very special Parker Pen, to which I am attached for sentimental reasons, though I can’t remember the reasons.
I pass it across to her.
But I keep her in the corner of my eye until she’s finished with it.
