missing the point! January 23, 2012

It was a good day

A statement like this can be seen in many different ways.  When typed in isolation and read as a matter of fact there is little doubt as to the suitability of the day yet, with intonation or a hint of sarcasm in its tone, the words would be understood most different.  You could also delve deeper and ask what the interpretation of the word “good” signifies to the writer, or what the length of a “day” really means.

Sometimes we need to be more matter of fact, accept the words given and move on.  Dissecting every last detail wastes time, is often unnecessary and regularly misses the original point.  Have a good day!
