Chocolate is terrible, sunny days are awful, and I hope I never get a raise at work. That’s right. It’s National Opposite Day! The day where you say exactly the opposite of what you really mean. And if you think I’m playing an early April’s fool joke on you, check out this link, https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/opposite-day/
The most important thing to remember is that if you are going to celebrate this day in the spirit it is intended, make sure the people you speak to are in on it. Otherwise, you may lose a friend if you say that you hate her new haircut!
It’s also the day when you can be sneaky and play a little game with yourself. Pay compliments to people that you wouldn’t normally flatter, but all along you know you’re saying the exact opposite of what you really mean. Hey, it may sound shady, but sometimes the truth hurts. Just ask this guy…
So isn’t it sometimes better to keep your real thoughts to yourself? Okay, now it sounds like I’ve turned this into Passive Aggressive Day (which in some homes, is also known as Thanksgiving.)
Oh let’s just go back to how Sesame Street did it.
After all, this should be fun! And that’s what this blog is all about. So get your mind set on opposites, and see how long you and your friends can do it until somebody says what they really mean. Or was that what they really mean? I guess it’s just as hard to tell on Opposite Day as it is any other day. Isn’t that ironic?
Or is it the opposite?
