The Yes Man

So I did the whole Yes Man thing today. Aaaaannnd, it really wasn't that big of a deal. I definitely said yes to way more than I normally would, but all in all, it was kind of fun. Forced me to be a little adventurous, I guess you could say.

I started off my day by saying yes to my middle child who asked if he could have a second heaping bowl of Cap'n Crunch. I said yes again when my daughter asked if she could eat Starburst for breakfast.

After my oldest son's game, which was at 8:00 A freaking M, we dropped the kids off at Ubes' parents house and went with some friends to a beerfest in Scottsdale. Where I proceeded to say yes a lot. Yes I'll try that dark beer. Yes I'll try that cider. Yes I'll try that IPA that smells like an old man on a hot day. Yes I'll enter that contest for a bike. Yes I'll take your picture with Norm from Cheers. Yes I'll sign that petition to legalize medical marijuana. Yes I'll split a philly cheese steak with you even though we ate like two hours ago. Yes I'll go with you to the port a potty. And yes I guess I will actually use the port a potty. Yes you can share my hand sanitizer. Yes I can drink more beer.

So all in all it has been a pretty good day. And I am looking forward to saying no a lot tomorrow. Peace out peeps. This Queen is tired.

You're a much braver woman than I. The thought of what MY man would ask for on a Yes Day (7 new games for the PS3, 19 hours watching ridiculous sports, revolting culinary concoctions consisting of literally ANYTHING battered and fried, etc) sends shivers of terror down my spine. I'll consider myself absolved from that particular idea because you just took one for the team. Thanks for sacrificing yourself in the name of wife-hood!

I LOVE YOU said...
