Life's a Shit Sandwich

The most memorable, and controversial, quote of book club Thursday night:

"Life's a Shit Sandwich. Every day's just another bite."

And if there ever were two polar opposite ends of a spectrum, Shelley is the Shit Sandwich and Mindy is the Sunshine Salad.

I miss book club!

If I may add context to the quote, it was preceded by "If there's one thing I want to make sure my kids understand..." and then that statement and my dropjawed reaction (that you found so amusing.) I just wouldn't wish such early cynicism on my children. One could argue that if you go forth expecting a shit sandwich then anything better would come across as a pleasant surprise. And life's disappointments wouldn't be so aggravating. Such as when a book club visitor violates the tenets of considerate conversation...

I have learned to expect that sometimes the raddichio might be a little bitter, but I'll still take the salad over the sandwich while I have a choice. Pass the dressing, please.
