Guide to Awesome… Day 21

The wise sage, Kid President bestows upon you the following from his Guide to Awesome:

If you see spinach (or anything else) in somebody’s teeth, tell them, but first only  after you’ve told them something embarrassing about yourself.

So, I tell lots of people embarrassing things about myself without then letting them know they have a little something something here or there, so this isn’t usually a problem for me.  In fact, I’ve been told several times, but different people at different times in my life, that my personality is embarrassing all on its own.  And ya know what?  I’m totally ok with that.

Now, about this whole food in the teeth thing.  I like to preface letting someone know this is the case by first saying one of the two following things:

  1. May I tell you something very, very personal?
  2. Before I say what I’m about to say, please remember that I am your friend and think about all the people who say they are your friend, yet have not told you this.

How do you do this for your friends?
