Unimpressed Cat is My Kindred


Guys, if ever a meme has imitated my life, it is Unimpressed Cat. 

I walk through life set to Unimpressed, so that when something good happens I am pleasantly surprised. 
It also means that when something goes wrong, I can use my Eeyore voice and say "Welp, I saw that coming." without experiencing disappointment. 

Most people don't understand this mindset. 
Most people tell me to get my chin up and slap a smile on my face, because everything is going to be ok

But I'm not an optimist. I will never be an optimist. 
I am a realist. And it works for me.

I am so many kinds of right there with you. Our way makes perfect sense because you're never disappointed - you're always pleasantly surprised, or "That's pretty much what I expected". Makes FAR more sense than having to slap on a happy face when you're secretly disappointed and miserable!

I have the worst poker face in the history of ever, so you can immediately tell when I am sad/upset/disappointed. I don't have the ability--or maybe just the patience?--to pretend otherwise. My realism helps me avoid quite a few awkward situations.

I think I'd like to think I'm Unimpressed Cat but I'm probably more like the ERMAHGERD girl. :(

This is, quite possibly, my favourite mental image that the internet has ever given me.

Thank you for sharing this because it seriously made my day. I am now obsessed with your cat's face.

Oh Abby, I wish that this was my cat!! I have an orange tabby--this is just a cat meme that's everywhere on the Internet right now.

AH HAHAHAHAHA! I now feel completely disconnected. But not so weird about wishing he was my cat...
