Yes (Wo)man


Sitting in the waiting room at an appointment yesterday, I had the opportunity to skim through several magazines. It's not something I'm prone to doing - magazines just ain't my thang. I zipped through an article in "O", Oprah's magazine, called 54 Ways to Say No (polite ways to refuse). It's inspired me to come up with ways to say Yes (enthusiastic ways to agree to participate) - part of my insistence that we give more of ourselves and be less selfish and wrapped up in our own little ball of yarn. I don't have 54 of them. Well, I probably do, but I don't have time for 54 of them. So, here's my short list.

Sure, I'd be happy to.

I'd love to do that!

I'm a little stretched for time, but I'll make it work.

Yeah, why not?

You got it!

It's not normally my job, but lets see what we can do.

Well, it's a bit outside of my comfort range, but I'll give it a try.

I've never done this before, but why waste a chance to learn something new?

It's the least I can do.

(with a Bruce Willis grin) It's what I live for. (or if you feel like throwing in some flare) It's my raison d'etre.

Just try'n stop me!

Always a pleasure to help out.

Okay.

Of course.

Certainly.

Sure.

You betchya.

Yes.
