20 Things to Say

May 24, 2010

I read this post on Steph’s blog ages ago, when I first heard of her and devoured half her blog posts in twenty minutes (yeah, it’s that good). This post isn’t book related, but I’m extremely excited to do it.

Below are twenty things I want to say to certain people-who-shall-never-be-named. I’m going to try to be blunt and honest (or at least more blunt and honest than I’d be to people’s faces). If you want to take a whack at this, go ahead, and I’d love to read your posts!

Here you go, 20 things I’m way too smart and/or cowardly to say:

  1. Dude, pull up your pants. Do you realize butts look better when they’re in pants?
  2. I really am nicer than I seem. I think.
  3. I think you’re an idiot. (Which sounds like a contradiction to #2, but, yeah, read #2)
  4. Sometimes, you need to try a little less to be someone you’re not. You rock as-is.
  5. I think you dress like a hooker. I’m sorry, but have you seen your shoes? Wrong impression.
  6. I love you even though you drive me totally insane.
  7. You know that thing you said a few weeks ago that you already forgot about? That hurt my feelings, and I cried.
  8. I think your accent is really cool. Can you teach it to me?
  9. The color of your fake-blond hair reminds me of the cheese powder for mac&cheese.
  10. Tomorrow, I want to give you a hug. But I won’t.
  11. Please, I’m begging you, please stop being a jerk.
  12. I love that you work so hard to be a good person. Not that you’re not a good person, but you still try hard to be even better.
  13. I love you so much that I cry (actually, I do say this. To my parents).
  14. I’ll be nice to you, but you actually annoy me. Sorry, but I’m human just like everyone else, remember?
  15. I’m not perfect. I wish I was, but I’m not. Thanks for thinking so, but I thought I’d give you a reality-check.
  16. When you laugh, I want to laugh, and when you cry, I want to cry.
  17. I think you’re a wonderful person. Period.
  18. Thanks for being my best friend because I know I’m really a pain sometimes. You should be granted saint-hood for putting up with me.
  19. Please, please don’t disappoint me.
  20. I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you.

As I said, I would love to read your posts like this; just give me a link! It’s so relieving to be able to just say it.

So, free yourself, let the words tumble from your mouth, and do it in a safe, no-body’s-going-to-think-I’m-crazy way.

I’m running out of books to review because I prefer to review books that I’ve read more recently. I’ll try to zoom through three or so books this week, but I’m also going to be writing more, so we’ll see! Happy reading, happy writing, and happy living!

    Ahaha! #1 made me laugh aloud. I also love #4 (and need to say it to people more often). And of course, #20 is a classic. I love, love, love this list! It made my day a little brighter. And regarding #2, you seem pretty nice already! šŸ™‚

    Love this! (Also love the top banner – cute owls!) Most of these things are so nice – I’m afraid I’d mostly go the other way : /

    Aw, I love this! some were cute, some were sad, some were FUNNY! (totally agree with #1- applies to ALL guys) and it’s weird, I can think of some people that would totally fit your descriptions šŸ˜› awesome post!

    Oh, you should totally say (almost) all of these things out loud and to the person involved. Go on, do it. I bet you’ll be surprised at the responses.
