Puddles

Dear Optimists,

I had been working up the “courage” to go outside to soak up some sun and go for a walk. It was definitely for the better – an Optimists told me so herself.

As I walked, I kept on thinking about what makes me feel like this; why do I feel all alone when I’ve got such good friends and such awesome readers that helps me look at the positive in life?

My smile was upside down, even as I kept reminding myself of all the love I receive daily. That was until I saw him.

You could tell he was happy deep within himself. The cold weather made me shake a little; it had been raining all night and the roads were paved in puddles. He looked at one and without thinking jumped right in, splashing water everywhere.

As I walked by, he didn’t stop. He looked so happy.

I started humming “Bye, Bye Blackbird” while jumping in the puddle next to him with a HUGE smile on my face.


Love,
Nadia.

How to use a nerf gun

Dear Optimists,

Remember that I told you that once (okay, my last one…) I got a nerf gun for my birthday?

What is a grown woman (yes, I’m pretty grown-up, even though it may not appear so) going to do with a nerf gun, I hear you whispering under your breath. Oh my, I reply, loud and clear. The possibilities are endless!

Okay, I admit, it can’t cook for me. Unfortunately. However, pointing it at my bf, declaring nerf war if he doesn’t cook, will indeed get me dinner.

The other night I found out another great use for the gun. The bedroom was more or less alive with a constant buzzing. Five mosquitos had found their way in – FIVE! Yes, I counted them.

What else to do than to guard myself with my nerf gun?

So, what do you use your nerf gun for?

Love,
Nadia.
