What I want to say No to….
No nudity. I no longer do public nudity. Ok. I never really did except the time in high school when my cousin and I were skinny dipping in her pool until we realized surveyors were on the hill opposite of us. Oops.
No nescience. What is nescience? Duh – It is a lack of knowledge! How ironic is it that you didn’t know? No stress. I didn’t know until I started searching N words.
No news. I despise all the news channels. I don’t get how the facts can be skewed. There are facts and there are opinions. One is fluid and one is not. I am leery of people who only believe in one news network.
No nebulaphobia. Well, I never really had the fear of fog. Although I might have a bit of necrophobia (fear of corpses) and definitely want nothing to do with necrophagous (feeding on the dead).
No numbers. Mostly as it goes for polls. Polls can be easily interrupted in a variety of ways. There are a plethora of variants. 6 of 10 people could be asked if the sky is blue and they answer no. Are they wrong? Perhaps they are very specific people and they happened to be asked the question at night? Technically they would be right. At night the sky is not blue. A great book on this is Freakonomics and I’m not just saying that because my cousin is one of the producers of the movie.
No more No. I realized that whenever my hubby asked me something I tend to always say no. No, I don’t like that statue on the island. No, I don’t want to cook you dinner. No, I have a headache. So a few months ago I made the commitment to no longer say no – at least not right away. Now I either quietly contemplate or say yes. Please note – I am not stupid – I didn’t tell hubby about this! Power can corrupt even the kindest of folks.
No nihilism. I may be skeptical but I will not deny all reality.
No negativity. This is really hard for me!! Infertility has taken quite a bit of my positivity. I’m trying to be less negative every day. I usually feel but each morning I try again.
No nannies. After seeing The Hand that Rocks the Cradle, I will never have a nanny. I might possibly have a sitter who has been completely vetted and followed by a barrage of nanny cams.
No nagging – I don’t nag. I’m not a perfect wife but I am careful not to nag.
No niramiai – Which is a period of stamping and glaring to cow your sumo opponent. Despite my physique, I am not a sumo opponent.
