If you have a Sagittarian in your life than you already know that one of our most positive (and sometimes irritating) characteristics is that of being an eternal optimist. Our row boat can be full of holes and the water level is rapidly approaching the top of our head, but somehow we just know that we're going to make it to shore. When life hands us a lemon we'll invent a hundred different ways to use it.
Conversely, if you have a Capricorn in your life then you know they can be doggedly pessimistic. Not only does their row boat have holes, it's on fire, they've lost the oars and they're in shark infested water. When life hands them a lemon, they'll think of all the reasons why their lemon won't have any juice and a lime would've been a better option.
Welcome to my world.
So you can understand why this entire Mayan 2012 doomsday thing is not making for a happy home environment here on Lakeside Ave. in Webster.
What is the Mayan 2012 doomsday?
Well, historically and neutrally speaking, December 21, 2012, is the date the early Mayans marked as the end of their 5,125-year cycle calendar and consequently the world’s transition date into a new era. Some believe this transition will be peaceful while others warn it will be nothing short of explosive.
As the optimistic Sagittarian, I'm thinking we should stop paying all of our bills and take the money we'd be sending to the mortgage company, credit cards, car payments, taxes etc. and go on a vacation. If the world is going to end why not make the most of it and take the next fifty weeks and spend the kids’ inheritance by traveling all over America and ending with the entire family enjoying a month at Disney World?
No more dieting or worrying about who to elect as our next president. No housework, grocery shopping or arguing with the neighbors over who's responsible for raking up the leaves or shoveling snow off the sidewalk. Life can be one big chocolate filled party.
Maybe I'll get really wild and crazy by removing all the "do not remove" tags off the furniture and bedding.
Let's see what my pessimistic Capricorn hubby thinks.
Oh wait he's probably busy checking the U.S. Geological Survey website to see if there's been any earthquake or volcanic activity in the past 24 hours. After that he'll check in with the space observatories, global and local weather channels to see if there are unusual changes in the jet stream.
He'll probably call the National Audubon Society to see if migratory birds have been moving at lower altitudes or if there's a report of any animals going awry. Lastly, he'll need to check our own weather station and plot the daily variances with the same period last year. He'll also have to take the cars down to check their fluids and fill up the tanks. I bet he's also just about done enlarging our own underground safety shelter.
Maybe he'll get really wild and crazy by changing his mind and vote a Republican ticket.
You've got the idea.
I'd be interested in knowing how many of our readers believe in the December 21, 2012, predictions--
