So last night things were getting hot and heavy, and I asked her if she would like to join me in the bedroom. Response: 'Not sure.'
Not sure?
'Maybe' I understand. Everything is 'maybe.' And, as we all know, maybe = no. Okay, that's settled.
Not sure? Uh, you're not sure about spending some pleasurable time with you husband that could be fun and healthy, emotionally as well as physically? You're not sure?
Here are some better uses of "not sure," for those of you playing at home:
Q: "Did you remember to put those letters in the mailbox?"
A: "Actually, I'm not sure..."
Q: "Did you get some milk while at the store?"
A: "Come to think of it, I'm not sure..."
Q: "Is the remote still wedged between the couch cushions?"
A: " know, I'm not sure."
I think we can see here that "not sure" is best reserved for things that are not bloody important.
The most elementary and valuable statement in science--the beginning of wisdom--is 'I do not know.'
