When did I have hope?Well, I do have this one: I hope my ticker can take another year. And my sphincter.
hope? sounds like a detergent or something.I don't buy it. haven't had a bottle in years.
There was or is one called "Cheer".I've tried liquid cheer but won't do powder. Sometimes the liquid cheer is helpful in facing the incoming Tide.
As a homebrewer, I made my own liquid cheer.... around 5 and a half cases from each batch.
Much of my time while I was teaching could be summed up in a bumper sticker I once saw: "I feel much better now that I've given up hope."
I lost hope when I watched the president of the university openly and shamelessly lie an obvious lie, and everyone around me pretended to believe it, despite the evidence of our senses and bare reason.
Mine started doing this lately. We're now trying to get him to fall on his sword.(Wonder if his leather armour would save him?)
It's only a lie if they know it's not the truth. They escape culpability by not really knowing what the fuck is going on. When they believe in a reality that is self-constructed, it is not the truth, but it's not a "lie".
