Here is a great post from my friend Bob Practico at Sojourn Huntsville Church. I love #10 (in an irenic sort of way ;))

(BTW: anyone looking for a great local church that is doing things right, if you are in the area, you ought to check them out).


1) Oops!
2) I think this will work.
3) Wow – I won’t do that again.
4) Uh-oh.
5) Huh?
6) There’s always plan B.
7) Let me get back to you on that …
8) Whoa! I didn’t think you’d do that.
9) C’mon, c’mon, c’mon – YES! I love it when a plan finally comes together.
10) Dude – no way! (exclamation of incredulity upon learning something new and unexpected)
