Drabble: Cheer up!

June 19, 2007

“Cheer up!” said the annoying man, “it might never happen!”

“Thank you,” she replied. “Your saying that has, in one stroke, solved all of my romantic, financial, emotional and health problems, as well as bringing peace to the Middle East and cutting the deficit in half. You should visit a cancer ward and, by inanely repeating the magic spell ‘Cheer up! it might never happen!’ you will doubtless cure all of the patients therein. Who would have thought a glib comment could be so effective?”

“I was only trying to help.”
