Bianca tells me she’s about to present me with her best masterpiece ever. I’m sitting down with my laptop reviewing Everyman Edict. As usual, I half listen and don’t really understand.
look up and admire Bianca’s pencil
sketch. “It’s good, it’s
excellent,” I say. Bianca looks at
me in shocked silence. I’m at a loss!
“What’s the matter?” I
ask. “Good, excellent. That’s
not what I want to hear!” I don’t
understand and I ask her what she means.
She responds that she’d have preferred
“amazing”. Now I understand.
I apologise profusely and promise to remember
that in future I must tell her, “It’s
amazing and I really appreciate it.”
I’ve just changed an essential of SoulBest from: feel good. Feel better. Feel excellent to: feel good. Feel better. Feel excellent. Feel amazing.
