Twenty Things We Should Say More Often
Number 20: Thank you. And not just on Thanksgiving—every day!
Number 19: Excuse me.
Number 18: Here's a surprise corn dog I bought you because you're my friend. There'll be more corn dogs, and more happy people—this is a good idea! Corn dog for you, corn dog for you, corn dog for you...
Number 17: I'm sorry.
Number 16: I forgive you.
Number 15: You can do it! But don't say it if it's something they can't do.
Number 14: Another thing that we should say more often, I have barbecue sauce on my shirt too. Before you say something about the barbecue sauce on somebody else's shirt, take a look at the barbecue sauce on your own shirt.
Number 13: Please.
Number 12: Everything is going to be okay.
Number 11: Aw! You got me a corn dog too?! You shouldn't have, buddy!
Number 10: I don't know. I know a lot of people who need to say that—my sister!!!
Number 9: You're so awesome I named my dog after you. Wait, wait, wait! That could hurt someone's feelings. I mean "boat." I named my boat after you. Wait! Who even has a boat? You're so awesome I legally changed my name to yours. Wait, that's super creepy. Just tell people they're awesome and mean it!
Number 8: Hello, person that I've never met before! Here's a high five!
Number 7: My sports team is not always the best sports team. It takes a big man to say that.
Number 6: Nothing. Sometimes, that's the best thing you can say.
Number 5: That doesn't mean anything, but it's just really funny.
Number 4: I disagree with you, but I still like you as a person who is a human being and I'll treat you like that because if I didn't, it would make everything bad, and that's what lots of people do, and it's lame. Whew! I need a water break, ya'll! It's okay to disagree, but it's not okay to be mean.
Number 3: Sometimes you just gotta scream. Aaaaaaaa!!!
Number 2: Life is tough, but so are you. Sometimes we all need to be reminded to keep going.
Number 1: Something nice! Anything! If you can't think of anything nice to say, you're not thinking hard enough.
