I like to tell people, “be bold.” I also like to tell them, “Eating too many chips is bad for you,” right before I grab their bag of chips and help myself.
Sometimes they don’t fully appreciate the teaching moment and I have to make a hasty exit, preferably without the bag on my head. But what I have to say about being bold especially goes this weekend, with abundant opportunities for both kids and grown-ups to delve into the more daring aspects of their personalities.
Yes, grab the bag! Just try not to be left holding it. Or wearing it.
