True Grit week 3

First off, how did I do with the eyebrows?
Honestly, I had a hard time remembering to look at other people's eyebrows when they were talking to me. I'd remember afterwards, but that didn't do me any good. I did notice that Ann Curry doesn't really move her eyebrows much on the Today show and Frasier's go crazy. I also noticed my niece seems to have wonderful arches in her eyebrows.

Ok, on to the week 4 challenge: The week of Wonderizing
The challenge is making "I wonder" statements at least once a day. Apparently it starts amazing conversations and makes you sound more intelligent, likable, and wise.

I kind of planned out my wonder statement on my walk to work. I knew a situation would come up with my coworker and when it did I let it fly. "I wonder what kind of conversations we will have at lunch" (We were having lunch with our boss and another boss level guy) At first I thought it flop as he kind of just shrugged, but then a few seconds later he started hypothesizing.

I like this challenge a bit more, because I'm not just looking at things and I'm curious to see how others will respond. 

the neon envelopes are the best


  1. I'm going to have to try using this. It sounds like a great conversation starter!

  2. Gretchen says thanks! I tried the I wonder statement at the house this morning and it didn't do over that well. I need to find a more receptive audience.

  3. Maybe it is just me, but I feel like I would have a hard time keeping the sarcasm out of my voice when I ask an I wonder question.


Comments are awesome!
