You might be wrong

In a painted stencil, on a wall above a door in our favorite coffee shop in the Twin Cities, it reads "You might be wrong". As a person with a high level of feeling that I am right, this sign tends to catch my eye. I regard it. I think about it. I have a lot of different reactions. And this is what we're here for today.

Here are my ten reactions to...

You Might Be Wrong

1. So might you.

2. Other people really need to read this!

3. If only.

4. I suppose, but I still think you're wonderful.

5. Sure, but only about the big stuff.

6. Right, and I'm sure that as a wall you have a lot of perspective on the matter?

7. I guess, theoretically, but not this time.

8. Well, that would certainly be more convenient for... everybody.

9. You'll really have to be more specific.

10. And then I might be wrong about being wrong.

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
