Stick with me on this 'cause it's kind of counterintuitive.
One of my best friends is a stunningly smart and beautiful woman. She's the type of person who, when she walks into a room, people gravitate to her simply to hear what she has to say.
However, she does "incredulous" better than any human being I've ever been around. You know what I mean by "incredulous," it's a reaction of incredible surprise and disbelief. Imagine hands in the air, eyes and mouth wide open; the physical manifestation of OMG!!! Imagine that reaction combined with a look and body language that says, "You're an idiot and I can't believe that came out of your mouth.
Which is why I fire off every ridiculous thing I can say or do when I'm around her...just to watch world-class incredulous.
My friend was so incredulous about Trump winning last Tuesday night that she did everything but throw a wine bottle at the television, and dig a hole in her back yard and cover herself up.
Anyway, here's why I truly believe the future--at least in the short-term--isn't going to be as bad as my friend, her friends, and millions of Americans believe:
First, the Panthers lost the Super Bowl.
Second, the Tar Heels lost the National Championship.
Third, the Tar Heels lost to Duke in football by one point.
Finally...mmm...Donald Trump is the next president of the United States...of America.
My logic is that all the bad luck in the universe has been used up for now. For the next reasonable period of time nothing really bad will happen because the universe has to build up it's supply of bad luck.
So, start thinking blue skies, children laughing, puppies and kittens rolling around, good fortune for everyone!
