Some people say that what you say matters. Others say it’s what you don’t say that matters. As much as it bothers me to admit, it’s most likely both that matter. What’s confusing is that somewhere in there, one is both right in their statement and wrong in their statement, probably at the same time.

As is the case with comedian Robert Benchley’s advice: “Drawing on my fine command of the English language, I said nothing.”

In the end,  “Let your yes be yes and your no, no” is your best form of communication.

Straight. Narrow. Forward.
