A Whatever World

December 15th, 2014


I think “meh” is one of the most annoying, contemptuous expressions around. Meh is too bored to be bothered, too sophisticated to break a sweat, too jaded to jump for joy. ¬†And yet, I find that I’m dangerously close to developing a Meh state of mind. Go to that play? It’s too much effort to order the tickets, wear something besides sweatpants and find a parking place. Send a handwritten note? An email is good enough — after all, it’s the thought that counts. Throw a little party? It’s so much easier not to. I know myself too well to think I’ll suddenly leave home to hike the Pacific Coast Trail, but I want to be the kind of person who says “Yes” more often than “Meh.” Yes, I do! Yes, I will! Yes, I accept!

    I worked on saying yes this year, especially to live music and social gatherings.
