The Spinning Coin

Den of the Beastly Bear

Morning folks!

Have you ever met THAT person?
You know the one...that person that just appears to be mean and angry all the time? But then something strange happens...you see them interact with a child, or an animal, or perhaps their family and "Wa LA"!!!
Different person! They are kind, loving, and patient!

Oh, it goes the other way too. You know them as friendly, jovial, fun loving most all the time...
Then, in a different setting/situation they become a true ogre!

I have a theory about this...
That people are like a spinning coin.
With two sides, equal but opposite!
Some are just better at making change!  ;-)

What I mean is this. If you see a quarter size amount of jovial good humor, you can bet there's not "just" a dime's worth of angry ogre, even though that's all you see.
Oh no, there resides a full quarters worth whether you see it or not! There is no escaping the duality of our nature.

Which is why there IS such a saying as "Beware the anger of a gentle man!"

So as we go about our business today, let's keep in mind the spinning coin...and decide which side we'll show the world!

Be Well Folks!

Beastly Bear


  1. I try to show the happy side as much as possible...but everyone has bad days. *coughshoppingatWalmartcough* I was way, way angrier when I lived out west than I am now...because now I don't have to work. The less interaction with the general public, the better my mood. lol

    1. Hi JoJo...totally get the working with the public thing! And Walmart? Get outta here!! Lol!
      Thanks for dropping by!

  2. I have to say, my kids and grand-babies get the bulk of my happy, happy, while strangers, morons, I come across whilst out n' about get the no so happy. I'd much rather have it that way than the other way around, altho I'm sure my kids could give you another side to the coin, not so happy but still humorous. There's a way to blend the too when necessary.

    1. Glad I always get your best MiMi! ;-)
      Don't think I'd like that scathing wit turned against me! Lol!
      Thanks for your continued support and friendship!
