This is a special, very quick, introduction to an online course in how to avoid certain disaster by simply avoiding the phrases that are guaranteed to cause trouble......

For example.....if you are offered something technological, and you look at the offer NEVER SAY THESE WORDS......'That looks easy...'

Because it is not, never was, and never will be....easy.

These words should never be followed by the also horrible words.....'I think I can do it.'

Of course you can do it - if you are a millionaire and can pay several people a lot of money to do it!  But if you are a human, it is never easy....and odds can't do it!

There is the obvious phrase to avoid when driving down the freeway.....'Look at what good time we're making'.....because this will call out unto the demons of the road to cause a six hour traffic jam! 

The corollary for this is the unwise uttering of.......'Almost there'....Unless you are able to see your destination.....never even whisper these words!

And here's one .....uttered in error millions of times every doctor's offices, at the garage, waiting for someone - usually, but not always -of the female persuasion - to get ready for a party......said in the line at the grocery store.....the horrible words that call into being the EXACT OPPOSITE of what is said......THIS WILL ONLY TAKE A FEW MINUTES.......

           (Wipes eyes, shakes head)

There are hundreds of these phrases to avoid.....our special online course will ensure that you will never again utter these life-changing expressions.

      (Points up)

Just click on this link, and you, too, will be saved!  Thank you!

      (Turns to leave, stops, looks back)

.....and of course, my personal favorite......'What could possibly go wrong?'

       (Exits to a much safer world.....)
