"He used what he considers a 'simple equation' to reach his conclusion: O + (N x S) + Cpm/T + He.
O stands for outdoor activities, N for nature, S for social interaction, Cpm for childhood summers and positive memories, T for temperature and He for holidays and looking forward to time off."
Based on this information, yesterday, June 23, was the happiest day of the year. So I hope you enjoyed it. It's all downhill from here. (January 23 is the saddest day, according to Arnall's equation.)Personally, Thursday was a much better fit for this equation for me. The Boss Lady toasted me at lunch as the "Queen of Everything"...I received a card and healthy gift certificate to a local nursery as a "thank you" from my department...and I got to go to a lovely garden party at the end of the day, boosting the O, N, and S factors. School ended on Wednesday, so that increased my ranking for Cpm and He. Some people thought that Thursday was a bit on the chilly side, but I thought it was quite nice.
It was a pretty great week, all-in-all. There was lots of positive energy and I was able to lose 300 pounds of hideous fat on Friday, although I think my friends are going to miss reading all of the very entertaining letters that have been sent to me over the last few months. But I am grateful, as always, for the good people I know who seek out truth and examine both sides before reaching conclusions...people who believe in what's right and not in what's petty. Let's see if we can find a way to improve on June 23. It can't be all bad if Bambi I and II show up in your yard on June 24, right?
