for example, i love these shoes. i love this black keys album. i love my perfume.
see where i'm going with this? i feel like the word "love" at times gets diluted.
i've thought this for awhile now, actually since college when one lazy sunday i was sitting with my roommates (teen, d-ray and seifs), when we decided that saying i love you was so 1995. there had to be a better way to show someone you cared.
so instead of saying the normal and generic, "bye, teen - love you!", a new rule was made.
my roommates and i told each other daily that we were pretty.
when you roll out of bed on a sunday morning feeling like hell from the night before due to the 12-pack of milwaukee's
but it didn't stop at pretty, we said any ridiculous (at times false) compliment to just brightened our days.
for example, "bye teen have fun at class - you are the prettiest, skinniest most popular girl on campus. now hurry home so we can hit up $1 well drinks at flannigan's".
see, now isn't that better than "i love you". who doesn't want to be told they are skinny and popular?!?! i urge you to try it out with your friends, significant other or coworker today - you'll be surprised how far a simple, sincere compliment will go.
and for the record, i think every person reading this blog is pretty.
really pretty - even the boys.
