Something I haven't done for a while

Word of the Day
October 22
jawboningAudio Pronunciation\JAW-boh-ning\
the use of public appeals (as by a president) to influence the actions especially of business and labor leaders; broadly : the use of spoken persuasion
If I were a president, here are some of the ways I would jawbone you to death:
  • have the courage to hold convictions
  • having held them for a while, carry them out in your daily life
  • respect people who do likewise, even if they're not the same convictions as yours
  • work towards an international, intercultural, interfaith, intergender moratorium on jawboning 
Time for coffee....
