One Word

Last night at work, our restaurant manager asked us an interesting question.  If we had to wear a tee shirt with one word on the front, just one word that would describe us, what would we choose?

Talk about a thought provoking question.  My first thought was "awesome."  Sure, I'm awesome, right?
How about "entertaining"?  Or "loving"?  Maybe my word should just be "complicated." 

Can anyone say indecisive?

Then I thought maybe I would choose "Mama."  After all, so much of my life is being a mommy.  I can't even remember who I was before I became a mommy. 

We are all so many things to so many people.  And then there is who we are to ourselves. To find one word that is all encompassing is near impossible.  On that note, I think I'll go with this:
Looks good to me.

So tell me, what would your word(s) be?  Why?


  1. I would like to think that my word would be 'Flow' seeing as there is just so much you have to learn to just go with as a mother, but that doesn't really go with my rather large need to be in control of everything, which means maybe I should change mine to 'Helm' could I make my work be an aspiration? Look.. right now, I'm trying to take control of this little game of one word shirts by changing the rules… Fine, I'll go with the word "forward' because that's always where we are going… that's my final answer!

  2. Mine would be "contradiction" (or maybe "oxymoron" but I don't like the idea of wearing a word with "moron" in it across my chest). As in: I'm a sweet b*tch, an organized mess, a sexy mama, a slow runner, a fun stick-in-the-mud, a religious sinner, etc. I could probably come up with a hundred of these on any given day. So, there ya go.


Throw in your two cents!
