When I think of things that are nice I envision blueberry pie, a sunny day and Reese Witherspoon.
I also think of it in terms of exchanging pleasantries with someone you don't know very well.
Them - "We just got back from a trip with our in-laws."
Me - "Oh, how nice!"
I save it for times that sound like it might not necessarily be my cup of tea. It has taken on a double entendre that I also reserve for the phrase "that's interesting."
I prefer to say the word as an entire sentence, in a slightly sarcastic tone and as if I was a character in the movie Dazed and Confused.
Needless to say, you could imagine how excited I was to receive my very first blogging award: The Nice Matters Award. It comes with this really nice button.
It's because I don't swear on this blog right? Thankfully it was awarded to me from my wondrously, brilliant friend Sandra. She equates nice as the plain, boring, single girl that is being set up on a blind date. She's told all her hot, single friends to check out my nice blog.
Don't get me wrong. I am gracious that Sandra recognized me and I am going to take this opportunity to bring back nice. Because it's sexy to be nice.
“This award is for those bloggers who are cool people and awesome blog friends - those who bring tingly feelings and inspiration. Also for those who are a positive influence on our blogging world. Once you’ve been awarded, please pass it on to 7 others who you feel are deserving of this award.”
Now I'd like to make nice and pass it on.
The sexy Motherbumper helped me with the finishing touches on the new nice button! She often creeps into my head and this makes me feel less alone.
Debbie has the biggest heart. I love her to pieces.
The loveable Kittenpie is a more reasonable version of me but as a sexy librarian.
*For real fun use this post for as a drinking game. Take a large gulp of your favourite beverage every time you read the word nice. I'm sure that I'll look nicer when you're tipsy.
