A Slew of Hope

By Doug Ankerman

Having hope is what keeps us going. Hope drives us. Hope motivates. Hope encompasses everything we live for — even the silly things, like these…

Hope I can wear these sweatpants another day.

Hope I can sleep tonight.

Hope I can make it to the bathroom.

Hope the tile floor isn’t wet.

Hope I don’t have to walk through the grass.

Hope it’s not too hot.

Hope it’s not too cold.

Hope no change on my MRI.

Hope I can remember your name.

Hope they have a fork.

Hope I can just “splash-n-spritz” and not take a shower.

Hope my shoes are handy.

Hope I can stay awake at the movie.

Hope they have close parking.

Hope there is shade.

Hope there’s a place to sit.

Hope this post doesn’t go on much longer.

Hope I still have another prescription refill.

Hope my pill-case isn’t lying (This IS Wednesday, right?).

Hope these socks match.

Hope the car has enough gas.

Hope I can open this ketchup packet.

Whoops. Hope Tide-To-Go works on this.

Hope no one sees me dressed like this.

Hope I don’t have to go upstairs again.

Hope my appointment is in the morning.

Hope this isn’t fattening (Who am I kidding).

Hope this isn’t another robocall.

I can’t read this — hope I can find my cheaters.

Hope this ends before I nod-zzzzzzzzzzzz

Hope YOU have a tremendous 2022!
