The Optimist

Morten Dragsted, Denmark, 1997

DK/Short fiction

Tim B. Jørgensen is an optimist. It¿s so nice to be happy, he thinks. He's got a good job, a lovely suburbian flat. He often talks with his terrific grandmother on the phone, has a beer with his great pal Niels and walks his faithful dog Connie. Lots of things bring happiness in Tim's life: the lottery, a complete collection of Mariah Carey CDs, his stereo. Can Tim be anything else but happy? Nope! Hurrah for Tim!
