Texts From Last Night's Game

So here's the texts that I exchanged with my mom during last night's game. I had given up hope after watching the Dodgers bumble through five innings of thoroughly mediocre offense. Clayton Kershaw led off the inning with a single, and then Chone Figgins struck out looking. I was done.

But, ever the Dodgers fan, my mom (who was at the game) had a feeling something good was about to happen. I was skeptical.

She was right.

Is it better to be negative and then be pleasantly surprised when the worst doesn't happen?
If it is better to be a positive thinker like Sax's mom and karina, is it possible to make yourself think differently? Is it an actual choice or are we stuck thinking the way we think?

And looking at the levels of positivity, it makes me wonder: is karina Sax's mom? I have never seen them in the same place.

This is too funny. I gave up on them even before you did and it was also my mom who got me watching again.

Best mom ever!

Mother knows best sometimes, apparently.

Mother also uses emoticons with reckless abandon.
