from the "one-sixteenth full" department

For all of the altercations, break-ups, insults, arguments, and general clamoring that reaches my office window from the sidewalk three floors down, I wonder if there are just as many agreements, compliments, good deeds, proposals, and favors happening that I can't hear.

(Probably not, but I like to think so.)

dude, you should seriously hang a microphone out your window and record some of this stuff.

What I can hear is discouraging. I'd rather not amplify that.

At least people are eating Ben & Jerry's down there.

probably - probably outweighs, actually. It's way to easy to get bogged down in the neg - "squeaky-wheel", and all that.

For every angry, aggressive panhandler, there is one that says "god bless you" in response to the standard, "No, sorry, man." (?)

"Agreements, compliments, good deeds, proposals, and favors" don't generally involve the shouting that would reach three floors up, no? Happiness is all around you.

This makes me want to go hang out below your window and holler sweet-nothings at my lover.

Please do. Better yet, invite him along: you guys can get ice cream at the B&J's downstairs and croon romantically to each other.

I Love You Man!!!

Actually my second thought along that line was to try to get a whole flash mob to come together and loudly proclaim messages of peace, love, and understanding.

I'm sure the presence of ice cream can't possibly hurt in that endeavor.
