Ah-May-Zing?

OF COURSE IT IS

If You Haven’t Already … I’m Asking Nicely … 

Now is the perfect time to stop using this insufferably hyperbolic Idiom.

To the habitual user (serial abuser), a kind request – consideration – to please refrain from another impulsive chorus …

… The annoyingly slow-as-molasses, exaggerative annunciation (of its three trite syllables) could use a sabbatical from popular social commentary vernacular.

POURQUOI, MICK?

Life Happens Exactly As It Should … 

In its own Time.

According to The Plan.

… You Do Know About The Plan, Right?

FUN FACT CONFESSION

Not-Every-Bloody-Thing-Under-The-Bright-Blue-Sky-Above-Us …

Is … Ah-May-Zing. 

Of course, this what I call a non-biased Factual Opinion.

… My Facts, My Opinion.

FUN FACT CONFESSION 2

Most Things Are Simply … Just Okay … 

Unspectacular.  Mundane, even.  Expected.

“Shouldn’t We Aim A Trifle Higher Than The Sinking Water Line of Adequacy … Rather Than Labelling Every Trivial Task And Common Deed With Such Grandiose Superlatives?”

… A Little Higher.

LOQUACIOUS LOVE-IN

All Together Now … 

Amazing happens, no argument.

We’ve all witnessed it plenty of times Miracles. Everyday.

… So, what about this cultural phenomena goofiness we call Ah-May-Zing?

ON THE LIGHTER SIDE

Okay, It’s Inoffensive … Inconsequential … Hurting Nobody … 

Perfect, fine.

“Perhaps, we could schlep it down a notch?”

I’ll abide, but what about … 

DOG WALKER, ESQ.

Picking Up Puppy Poop … 

It’s what We’re Supposed To Do … right after Fido, Rover, Rex, Rocky, Spot, Zeus, Apollo, Daisy & Company deposit their daily deuces.

Sporting a Norwegian pine-scented, organic hemp, biodegradable doggy bag to transport said Tootsie Roll does not qualify for Humanitarian of the Millenia candidacy.

… Yeah, Not Ah-May-Zing, Carl.

OPENING THE DOOR

Saying, Thank You … Please … You’re Welcome … 

Manners.  Helping Others.  Courteous.

“Isn’t ‘Doing Good’ What This Life Gig Is All About?”

… Appreciated And Love You For It … But Yeah, Not Ah-May-Zing, Bud.

CUM LAUDE

Getting a C+ in English Class … 

When English is your native tongue?

Swiping plastic for a new iPhone 12 to reward noted genius offspring?

… Yeah, Not Ah-May-Zing – Thanks For Lowering The Bar – Mom & Dad.

SIZE MATTERS

Stuffing Your ‘Love-The-Skin-You’re-In’ Carcass … Into An Outfit One Size Smaller Than Your Regular Fit … 

Respectfully, the cruel lies we convince ourselves – perpetuated dutifully by our Besties – as the mirror conspires with our delusionary instincts to deflect the truth.

“Size Appropriate (Clothing) Just Isn’t Sensible … For Breathing … It’s Big Self Love … By Being Honest.”

Yeah, Not Ah-May-Zing, Darling.

BARISTA

Frothing Up A Wicked Chai Latte … 

Almond-flavored Soy Milk, por favor.

Doing Swirly Swirly hearts in the cup.

… Yeah, Not Ah-May-Zing, Same Carl.

Followers.  Likes.  Winks.

Slow Clap.  Applauso.  Nice one.

It’s only a game.  Counting score.

… Numbers Are Not Amazing, Comparatively Speaking.

SO, WHAT’S

Truly … Ah-May-Zing?

Glad you asked.

Short or Long Answer?

Start with this …

GRACE

Being Kind … I Know What I Said Above … 

Slowing.  It.  Down.

Goodwill.  Charitable.  Benevolent.

… Doing What Matters In The Favor Of God.

GOD + LOVE

Pinch Me If You’ve Read This One Before … 

The Secret To God’s Love Is Not A Secret – It’s Accepting His Love.

Denying, deflecting, refusing Divine Love?

…  That Can’t Be A Good Way To Start Eternity?

HEART + SOUL

The Dynamic Dual … Inseparable Pair … Two Peas In A Love Pod … 

“You Can’t Have One Without The Other.”

They’ll Get You Exactly Where You Need To Be … Right On Time.

… Like Uber for the Faithful.

GIVING + RECEIVING

Pinch Me, Again … Small Miracle Worth Repeating … Everyday … 

“The Choice To Be Amazing Is Yours.”

Where, When and HowOf your time, heart and pocket.

Why doesn’t figure in the equation here.

POST SCRIPT

Guilty Confession Of A Recovering Hypocrite …  

I have no business weary Skinny Jeans.  So, I don’t, but I would if I could.

I also lack the mindfulness necessary not to wear the lesser cumbersome Slim-cut Jeans.

… Ah-May-Zing.
