    Ladies and gentlemen! Step right up! Take a good look at these here two individuals: Optimist and Pessimist! Their outlook on life and careers will amaze and amuse you! Take it away, boys!

    Optimist: “I made a career out of developing fragrance-free strawberry wine.”

    Pessimist: “What a waste of my life! I made a career as a Patrol Officer in the worst neighborhood in the country!”

    Optimist: “I failed, but learned to appreciate the delicate chemistry between grapes and strawberries!”

    Pessimist: “Life sucks!”

    Optimist: “When I retire, I plan to go on a solo hot air balloon ride around the world!”

    Pessimist: “My pension and benefits won’t repay me for all the times I have been shot, spat on and disrespected!”

    Fragrance Free Strawberry Wine – only an incurable optimist would have believed it were possible. “Think of the benefits! Think of the sales! Think of the boost to your careers if you ace it! The scent-hounds of the Temperance Patrol would never cotton on…” “But… isn’t the fragrance a part of the individuals’ imbibing experience?” Dennis the pessimist was always ready to throw cold water upon any scheme. But he had a plan. He went solo, finished the project with a way to make the taste buds explode to make up for the absent bouquet – and his career took off from there.
