danceThis post would work better in audio, but it's still worth a share.

Bob recently declared himself to be "All Knowing." Or that's what I heard him to say—until he clarified by telling me,

"When I ask if something is possible, I think 'no.'"

"When I consider new options, my first response is 'no.'"

"When I approach anything, I'm All-No-ing."

What an important thing for a No-it-All to know. Lol.


I came into his world a bit too Un-No-ing. I simply didn't 'No' enough.

Initially we balanced each other by polarizing each other. Now we balance each other by drawing from the best of each other's styles. I know to say "yes" to that.
