After watching, for the millionth time, Jim Carrey’s Yes Man, I began thinking about just saying yes to everything for a day.
Interesting prospect. I just wonder how long it would take for folks to catch on.
Would you like to super size this? Yes.
Would you like to add a rental car with your hotel? Why, yes.
Would you buy me a puppy? Yes, of course.
But, seriously, some issues may arise from this.
At school: Mrs. M., can we leave the classroom and go to our cars and drive around for a while?
Mrs. M., can I be exempt from taking the final exam?
Mrs. M., can you buy me beer? Not gonna happen.
At home: Mommy, can you buy me the Lego Death Star for $499 bucks?
Mommy, can we get a giant boa constrictor?
Mommy, all first graders have a cell phone, so can I get one? Not gonna happen.
Maybe I am not ready to be a Yes Mom just yet… But maybe today, since we are in Walt Disney World, I can be a Yes Mom for one day.
Yes, I think that could work. Just don’t let my dudes know about it, OK? 😉
