Wile E Coyote

October 27th, 2011 at 11:38 am

I've always been a Looney Tunes fan and the road-runner/Wile E. Coyote ones are my favorites. I caught one yesterday on TV. As I was watching I realized why I like Wile E. Coyote so much.

1. He doesn't give up. He keeps trying scheme after scheme to catch the road-runner. Even after serious set-backs, such as falling off cliffs or getting blown up, he keeps trying.

2. He keeps learning. He is always reading a book to learn how to do things better. He tries to improve his skills, to do a better job.

3. He doesn't blame others when his plans fail. He doesn't sue the Acme company when his misuse of their products causes harm to him. He doesn't blame anyone else because he can't catch the road-runner.

4. He's optimistic. He always thinks that next time will be better and he'll actually catch the road-runner.

5. He's ingenious. He's always coming up with new plans and new ways of using the materials he has available to plan ways of catching the road-runner.

Those are all good traits and after all, he's just trying to get dinner, something everyone would do in his situation.

We got a little bit of snow yesterday so walked at Walmart. I went to the pharmacy to pick up more test strips for my glucose meter. I've dealt with the pharacist a couple times on prescriptions, but wouldn't say I really know her. When I left she said "You're looking great, how much have you lost?" That made me feel good, even almost strangers are noticing the loss.

We ate at Village Inn afterwards. They give out free pie on Wednesdays. I gave mine to my dad. I have 2 $1 off gallon of gas points at King Soopers and gave my dad one of those to use this month too. I still have half a tank and won't fill up till sometime next month.

I finished reading Indulgence in Death by J.D. Robb. Mystery - excellent.

    It's nice when people can see that your efforts lead to success, and even better when they are relative strangers! Very cool, congratulations. It sounds like you have some insurance of determination and a supportive group around you, as well.
