Lesson 4 of 5
Lesson 4 concerns something called “The Do-Over.” Walk with me.
We, as humans, all have impulses and urges. Some of us act on them and some of us don’t. Some people are reserved and some are spontaneous. It doesn’t have to be this way. I’m sure you can think of at least one time in your life where you wanted to say something or do something but you didn’t because you weren’t sure if it would be appropriate…or you were pretty sure it wouldn’t be. Brothers and Sisters, it doesn’t have to be this way. We no longer have to live in fear and timidity. I present to you The Do-Over.
The way The Do-Over works is simple. When you are in a situation where you have something either brutally honest yet maybe uncouth to say, or maybe a nugget of hilarity..just go for it. That’s right. Say that shit. But immediately after, say “Do-Over” and then say whatever you probably should have said in order to be proper. It’s that easy.
Scenario. You meet your girlfriends parents for the first time.
GF’s Mom: “It’s so nice to finally meet you.”
You: “You know what else is nice? Bangin her. Do-over. It’s great to meet you too. You have a lovely home.”
Get it? The applications for this are endless. Remember the timing though. You have to follow with “do-over” right effin away. And immediately after that, you have to say something that’s acceptable. This way they can’t react. If, for some strange reason, they do react..just act like you only said the second part. That’s the beauty of it.
What The Do-Over does is essentially erase that first thing you said. It frees you from the social constraints that stifle us. Everybody wins. You get it off of your chest, and you get to be politically correct at the same time.
And I’m not responsible for anything. You’re on your own if the dad fucks you up.
