life with sticks in one's head

a joke by McGahern (RIP)

An American interviewer asked John McGahern if his books weren’t terribly dark and pessimistic. McGahern responded by asking, “Do you know the definition of an American optimist?” “No,” responded the American. “It’s someone who goes to the top of the Empire State Building and jumps off. As he’s falling, he passes a window washer, who asks him, ‘How’s it going?’ to which the man responds, ‘Great so far!!!!'”

Yup.
