Don't Count You Chickens Before Your Eggs Hatch

Angie Towery
Staff Writer

Is one really optimistic or pessimistic when seeing chickens in place of eggs? I believe the average person probably counts his/her paycheck by the hours they normally perform. However, is there an allowance in that figure for an unpaid, unexpected sick day?

When preparing for things ahead of time, such as bills, vacation, a new pair of shoes -it's simple to think on a forty hour week, but what if?

Sights on the normal routine is more often perceived as being pessimistic than optimistic because the future isn't a guarantee. I think: the person doing the counting is really the optimist and the voice that nags, "Don't count your chickens before your eggs hatch." is really the pessimist.

Is there really a happy medium for expect the best but prepare for the worst?
