What You Say

What you say, and how you say it…

Things you say might make all the sense in the world to you, because you may know what you intended to say. But the quizzical look on the face of the person you are talking to, may give you reason to pause and confirm, correct, and clarify what you said versus what they heard.

Do people always speak with wisdom?

For example:

  • People want the front of the bus, the back of the church, and the center of attention.

  • A boiled egg is hard to beat.

  • And a will is a dead giveaway.

  • If you try to fail and succeed, which have you done?

  • If you cut too many corners, won’t you be going in circles?

  • Santa’s helpers are substitute clauses.

  • A chicken crossing the road is definitely poultry in motion.

  • Don’t sweat the petty things. Don’t pet the sweaty things.

  • Always remember you’re unique. Just like everyone else.

  • Before you criticize someone, try walking a mile in their shoes. That logic will put distance between you and them and you may have a new pair of shoes.

Words have meanings. But does your vocabulary list have the same meanings for the person(s) you are talking to?

Remember, it may simply be where you put the emphaa-sis-on-the-sill-aaa-bull as well.
