Did anyone else see Jimmy Fallon's thank you note skit on the Olympics with Bob Kostas a few nights ago? I guess Jimmy Fallon always writes his "thank you notes" for the week on his Friday night show- and he did them on the Olympics this week. It got me thinking that I should catch up on my thank you notes, too. So here goes:
Thank you, Hawaii tsunami, for reminding me of how gullible I am. I watched MSNBC for 2 hours on Saturday, because those reporters kept telling me that you would arrive 'any moment'. I naively believed them; just as I have believed politicians about healthcare reform. Tsunami and healthcare reform- you have both bested me; which is not an easy task. Well played.
Thank you, Olympians who are younger than me, for inspiring me to work my hardest in all endeavors. Even though I have apparently passed my physical peak and have zero Olympic potential- your discipline and success continuously inspire me to grab another snack while I watch you on TV.
Thank you, man on the treadmill next to me yesterday, for acting like you didn't smell my fart. It was incredibly disgusting; but you just kept running, albeit with less frequent breaths. That was true sportsmanship.
Thank you, cashier at my favorite pizza place, for knowing me by name as soon as I walk in for my tri-weekly pizza slice. I would prefer to be known by name at the gym, or at the library- but I'll take what I can get. Next time, could you cue up the Cheers theme song when I walk in? Thanks.
Leave a comment with a thank you note of your own. They are really fun to write!!!
