I realize that the chances of Billy Joel reading this are practically nonexistent and the chances of him reading this and then saying “I’d like to meet this guy” are a million times less than almost none but here’s something you don’t know about me: I’m ridiculously optimistic.
I believe that good things happen to people who work hard and do nice things. This might make me a sucker but I don’t care. I used to be jaded and cynical and I was miserable all the time. Today I approach every day like it could be the best day of my life and I act accordingly because the best day of your life is never going to be the one where you were angry and mean.
What’s even more amazing is that Will has managed to retain this optimism while being a Mets fan.
