a thumbs up kind of person

I think shaking hands it kind of random. You grab someone's hand and shake it?
That's what we're going to start conversations with?
You want me to grab his hand...and move it up and down?
o.k. Kind of weird though.

How about the high five? It's o.k. if you're passing each other in the hallway and neither person stops...but to face someone and then high five just seems kind of cheesy.

Bumping fists - or giving a "pound" - or "Knucks" is ok if you do it sarcastically (oh you can do nonverbal sarcasm...come and sit at my feet while I teach you of this art grasshopper)

These all leads me to the thumbs up. I'm working hard to bring it back. It's almost painfully awkward (and I LOVE AWKWARD) but I'm going to keep at it until I see two different people in the same day do it...and not just to do it because it's me...but because they're trying to be a thumbs up kind of person.

That's what I'm all about. Bringing back the thumbs up...and the phrase "knuckle sandwich" ...and eventually Frank Stallone's career.
one day at a time...

    TWO thumbs up on this one!

  2. I'll rent 'The Aristocrats' and let you know how it is...

    And Smitty???!!! Are you kidding me? Consider yourself blessed to be in the presence of such greatness. Did you go blind for a time? I would have...

    Can you write me a script for 'Reggie the Veggie-tarian"? His name's Reggie. He's a vegetarian... now GO!

    And friends are friends forever...
