YOU know what we thought might be fun today? We thought it might be fun to offer up something completely opposite to those WORDLESS WEDNESDAY posts we see all over the Blogosphere. Why? Well, because thinking in terms of “opposites” is kind of what we do, and posting in terms of “wordless” is basically something we don’t.
ANYWAY, we like words, and we try to use them as often as we can. That said, we do know we could use them more effectively. Actually, we don’t know that, but we suspect it’s true. Never more so than after watching this helpful film, which beautifully and dramatically explores the means for tongue-tied folks like us to further enhance our skills as grand and persuasive orators. We can’t wait to try out some of the techniques we learned, and plan to do so the first chance we get. Oh, we know what you’re thinking: what a shame some of us (me) can’t express ourselves (myself) as beautifully as DIESEL. We agree. Guess it’s because we’ve yet to discover a helpful film to aid in our pursuit of grand and persuasive writing skills. Not to worry, though, ‘cuz if it’s out there, by golly we’ll find it, or our names aren’t… uh… “Good Finders of Helpful, Grand and Persuasive Stuff” (which is what we call ourselves in the privacy of our own blog — until we can come up with something more succinct).
ALL this to say, what could be better/more entertaining/more hilarious-tho’-mildly-pathetic than watching a 50-something man/dad/boss, who is woefully lacking in verbal skills, struggle to be more “explicit”? A word he learned from his son, by the way, who, despite being in high school, looks to be around 28.
DID we mention anything about knowing and/or appreciating the fact that a lot of our Very Good Friends participate in Wordless Wednesdays? No? Well, we do know and/or we do appreciate. Believe us when we say we think those of you doing all that “not writing” should keep it up. After all kids, there are only so many words to go around on any given day, and, bloghogs that we are, we’d like to keep as many of ’em for ourselves as possible.
UM… thanks to DIESEL, we have a lovely screen shot from this film that begs to be, er, ah, explored in more, um… detail (poor poor Mrs. Willis).
