I have read a very interesting article in Reader’s Digest Asia about the wonders and learning saying hello could bring. One that I found most interesting was the point about how you always smile when you say hello, like hello and a smile comes a la fast food combo. I tried to say hello and yes, I was smiling. Of course I had to try it to prove the point.
What Mother Goose noticed in the article was this point however about how people these days tend to only talk to other people when they need something. She complained that it was awful, and I thought, what is so awful with being task-oriented? LOL
I think those are the same words that characterize society these days – task-oriented, and because it is task-oriented, people tend to undermine close, personal relationships – and that people is the reason why they are so many broken homes, broken relationships, even broken people, and broken vases in the world today.
Back to saying hello , I have always thought that cats have the most interesting way of saying hello, aside from the fact that they are the most narcissistic and autistic animals in the planet. As for my cat, Jin does not meow much, so seldom that Don Domeng thought he was mute.
However, I found this cat saying hello video for you so that you could see what I mean. Of course the cat in the video is not Jin. Jin is smaller, and not mute.
