The Secret Is Out









I have a secret.


No, not that one…


I have a Secret…. Magic word.


A very dangerous secret magic word.


Listen closely as you are about to be astounded and mystified by the sheer awesome power of the magic word.


Guaranteed to render you speechless!


It is so mighty in fact, that you might not ever want to say it again for fear of all its’ spellbinding repercussions.


Ready?


Mothers hold on to your children….


Okay…..


Here goes….


The magic word is……..



Hello.



It’s okay. Don’t be afraid...


It won’t hurt you.


For your protection, this secret word does have limitations and must be used wisely.


Not everyone is susceptible.


Some are actually immune to its power.


But some ….


Yes some are simply held powerless against it.


For those easily spellbound, once this word is cast, their ability to allow anyone else’s words to penetrate their lengthy monologue becomes magically impossible.


Completely entranced, the possessed-demon talker can only be silenced by uttering the name of Hello’s arch nemesis….


Goodbye.


Yes my friends, it’s scary to be in possession of such a lethal weapon.


So now that you know, be very careful on whom you choose to cast this magical word upon.


Use your power wisely.


There are just so many hours in the day right? (-:

That is just the cutest little post! I must admit that I've said hello to the wrong people before!

Sophia's Mom on February 6, 2010 at 3:32 PM said...

You're right! As per usual.
Hello is a powerful word. And I too have sad hello to the wrong people. The problem with Goodbye is that it's hard to utter when the spellbound chatterbox doesn't even take a breath!

Yep, yep and yep. If you say hello to the wrong people, usually a Space Invader, you cannot get rid of them.

Miss Fanny on February 6, 2010 at 4:46 PM said...

Cute. I must admit I am guarded with my hello's so that I don't have to pull out too many good-byes.

Ah, geez! Now you got Lionel Richie stuck in my head!

This is a big lesson for children, the biggest maybe!

Reason number 234 I enjoy being a hermit

Andrea (ace1028) on February 6, 2010 at 6:33 PM said...

Hello, indeed!! ;)

BugginWord on February 6, 2010 at 7:14 PM said...

Also don't be afraid to use the phrase, "I'm sorry but I can't hear you!" If necessary follow up with, "the voices in my head are too loud."

Mad Woman on February 6, 2010 at 11:18 PM said...

I'm actually afraid to say hello to most people for fear that they'll take that as an invitation to speak to me.

Robin on February 7, 2010 at 8:09 AM said...

Hey There, come get your award....!!

MODG on February 7, 2010 at 11:47 AM said...

this confuses the shit out of me

Hello.

Tracie on February 7, 2010 at 12:38 PM said...

I've got the Beatles song in my head.

My name is PJ. on February 7, 2010 at 1:08 PM said...

Very dangerous when said on an airplane about to fly across the country.

Must also use with caution when encountering senior citizens at the store.

Captain Dumbass on February 7, 2010 at 3:16 PM said...

Well helllllllo.

ReformingGeek on February 7, 2010 at 5:11 PM said...

Hello, Hello! Yes, very scary. Be very careful of adding "How are you?"

Erin on February 7, 2010 at 5:28 PM said...

I am too nervous to say hello too often! Need to work on that!

Jen on February 8, 2010 at 4:50 AM said...

Never ask "How are you?" unless you have a lot of time on your hands. For that matter don't ask me how I am doing or you'll never get anything done.

And thanks, now I have Lionel Ritchie in my head too.

Moooooog35 on February 8, 2010 at 5:06 AM said...

That's why I just flip people the bird whether I'm coming or going.

SO much easier.

Organic Motherhood with Cool Whip on February 8, 2010 at 6:49 AM said...

Remember that Lionel Richie song, "Hello?" That's what popped into my mind while reading your post. And now I can't get it out. Hahahaha! Great post. You are such an awesome writer!

Lauren on February 8, 2010 at 7:12 AM said...

Bravo! Great post with nice twist at the end. Hello's arch enemy, Good bye. Hilarious.

Tiffany on February 8, 2010 at 12:03 PM said...

yes, it is quite a secret. i'm finding more and more that people are astounded when i use it and don't know what to do. and i live in the south...geez.

Travelbug Mom on February 8, 2010 at 2:23 PM said...

You had me at HELLO!

Mammatalk on February 8, 2010 at 5:03 PM said...

I prefer Hello's cousin, Hola!

Wonderful, delightful post!

Miss Spoken on February 8, 2010 at 10:54 PM said...

My magical word(s) ... "I'm sorry, I can't care about that."

Debbie on February 9, 2010 at 5:30 AM said...

You are so funny! Those are very magical words.

Brahm on February 9, 2010 at 6:10 AM said...

Wow. Lionel Richie flashbacks. Plus April Wine visions (Canadian rock band, 70s 80s). So baaad music aside, good post! We all, or at least me, tend to scurry thru the day with head down. Which sometimes is good - I hate walking thru the supermakret and having every jerkwad who works there saying hello because is the script they have to say, really people, say it if is sincere, otherwise, c'mon, if its fake it sounds fake...

Richele on February 9, 2010 at 6:48 AM said...

So funny! So why not submit this to my round up this week? Huh? Huh?? why not?

For the record, I'd say hello and even ask "how are you?" to you. I'd love to be stuck next to you on a long plane ride. lol.

Me-Me King on February 9, 2010 at 8:54 AM said...

I bow to your awesomeness....."hello".

The Wifey on February 9, 2010 at 5:29 PM said...

Best to go with a wave next time, miss. Haha.

Oh, and I have somethin' on my blog that awaits you.

Swati on February 10, 2010 at 5:47 AM said...

Damn - that's my problem - overuse of HELLO, under usage of GOODBYE.

Amanda on February 10, 2010 at 8:34 AM said...

I avoid saying hello. I also avoid leaving my house. I also avoid sunlight.

Too many weirdos out there.

hypermom on February 10, 2010 at 12:04 PM said...

Love it! ;)

The Blue Zoo on February 10, 2010 at 12:46 PM said...

I would have loved to use 'Hello' on this weird guy sitting net to me on the airplane... If only because his entire body language was screaming 'Goodbye'!! LOL

drollgirl on February 10, 2010 at 1:18 PM said...

hello?!?!? HELLO!

Robin on February 10, 2010 at 5:45 PM said...

I love using Hello...when Im talking to someone and there not paying attention..so Im like..."heeelllooo, anyone in there"..while knocking on forehead..usually hubs during football game..or kids of course..otherwise Ive stopped saying it in public If I don't absolutely have to..I know..I'm rude in old age..Oh ..I do say ..Hello There!..to the hot guy at the bank..

Unknown Mami on February 12, 2010 at 9:39 PM said...

I'm just going to start conversations with GOODBYE.

The Absence of Alternatives on February 13, 2010 at 8:22 AM said...

Tru dat!

By the way, I guess the TONE when you say the magic words also matters because I have perfected the saying of "HE-LLLOOOOO?!" with raised eye brows and disdain in my voice to convey my displeasure and disbelief. But I guess that's NOT what you are referring to here...

Grab An Award-see below

Finally, you do not need to be a recipient of an award to give an award!

Grab An Award – My way of awarding it forward. The only rules are: THERE ARE NO RULES (Only rule is no rules? Rule for rules? Is that a rule? I’m so confused)

And what is nicer than giving an award with no strings attached just because?

So in the spirit of fun blog awarding and ‘cause I think they’re a great way to connect and share the blog love with our awesome fellow bloggers (without the chain letter affect-they give me the willies), I have created The Divine Blogger and Rock Star Blogger Awards to grab-I know, fancy right? -(o.k. so I won't quit my day job)

Grab it and let the lucky recipient (s) know that you have given them a rule-free award and not to be afraid to pick it up on your site. Once they grab it from your site, they are free to pass it along to others (rule-free of course). And anyone can grab it from their sites to pass on as well.

Hope you all enjoy awarding it forward!

Now hurry! Go make room in your closet for all that good karma. And please get rid of those old sweatpants while you're at it! (-:

Okay, here are my 10 honest things about myself:

1. I am an extremely well balanced individual

2. I am easily distracted

3. I don’t take rules seriously

4. I lied about number one (number 3 made me do it)

5. I have a short attention span

6. I often don’t finish what I sta..
