So, allow me to present you with a question:
What is the one word or phrase that immediately cheers you up when you hear it?
This questions comes courtesy of The Daily Post, of course.
I sat here thinking for a few seconds on this question, and I really couldn’t think up an answer.
Well, nothing decent.
The first thing that came to mind was the scene in Full Metal Jacket, near the end of the film…
Animal Mother: Freedom?
Animal Mother: You’d better flush out your head, new guy. This isn’t about freedom; this is a slaughter. If I’m gonna get my balls blown off for a word, my word is “poontang”.
But no, I’m not gonna equate “poontang” to the one word that makes me feel better.
A phrase? Hmm…I really couldn’t think of one. Can’t think of one. Even as I type this, no one phrase comes to mind that immediately cheers me up.
Hmm…Maybe “Jamba Juice”.
Jamba Juice always cheers me up.
Hmm…well, as I think about it, I’m sure it would be something related to Jiu Jitsu, because that is the one thing in my life I absolutely adore without reservations.
Hmm…maybe it’s “Shut up and train!” Seems a bit harsh though.
Definitely something with training. I truly love training Jiu Jitsu.
Anywho, what about you? What word or phrase immediately cheers you up?
