Which Was Admittedly Over The Top, But It Made Him Laugh

My son had a rough morning today, so I was trying to cheer him up, but I prefaced what I was about to say with, “Now I’m not trying to come across like a Pollyanna, but . . .”

“Who?” he asked me.

So I explained she was a character from a book, and tried to come up with an on the spot example of what I meant.  What I came up with was, “Pollyanna was the type of person that if her arm got ripped off and eaten by a bear, she’d say ‘I’ve always wanted to feed hungry animals!'”
