I just typed this blog post up, saved it to publish in the morning, and then it vanished. *shakes fist at WordPress* I hate rewriting things! It’s never the same the second time around. :p *le sigh*
First let me share a little pretty…
I loves him.
With that said, I’m actually excited because this week I have an answer for the blog question! I didn’t have to sit here trying to think of something for a change. The question is, if you could choose one super power what would it be? As for my answer, it’s easy… I want to be able to understand and speak all languages. Why, you ask? It’s not because I love to travel. Nor is it because it would be a great talent to have as a social worker. Nay, nay, my friends! It’s so that when I’m getting my nails done I can know if the chicks are talking about me or not. :p
I’m not by any means one of those idiots who shouts, “Speak American!” I’m all for multiple languages in this lovely country. But here’s the deal. I feel like if you’re a business owner and you’re speaking to clients in English then you flip into your native tongue it’s almost like you have something to hide. Yes, I know that when you’re speaking a foreign language it’s hard and sometimes you can’t think of how to say something so you switch back to what you know. I totally get it. It’s kind of like whispering though. There are times when people whisper because they’re talking smack and don’t want to be heard, not because they’re trying to be polite and quiet. So when you’re talking to me in English and to your coworkers in English then suddenly start talking in another language I’m naturally going to think you’re hiding something just like I would if you suddenly started whispering. If you’re talking about your drug dealing cousin who got busted, share the love and let me hear it too! :p
So there you have it… I want to hear and understand everything then be able to shock people by responding. :) Yeah, I know I’m special!
You know the drill… Tell me what super power you’d like to have, and check out the other Wednesday bloggers. Bonus points if you’re a long time lurker, first time commenter!
