Expectations of bad weather forecast..?
An optimist – someone who can’t see a bus 2 meters away when he crosses the street
A pessimist – a person who can’t see the forest because of all the trees.
One explanation could be that optimists are farsighted
while pessimists are nearsighted – and both often need glasses.
We are very often too clumsy to put up expectations in a way
both to ourselves and to our surroundings
and if possible we are even more worse to “making image” of these expectations
so others understand us
perhaps we forget when we “airing” our expectations
so we talk to people who have their own expectations
(which they explain as “good” as we do our)
the main ingredient in a conversation, it is hearing
it is easier to talk ourselves away from the acceptance of our expectations
than it is to listen to get an acceptance of our expectations.
Maybe therefore so many expectations are half started or unfinished as:
“It was a dark and stormy night…”
the famous opening phrase of Snoppy from “Peanuts” on his typewriter
(taken from Edward George Bulwer-Lytton’s 1830 novel “Paul Clifford”)
The expectation is hanging in the signal.
