No, I do not want a “pretty flower” with my pedicure. No, I do not want to see the dessert menu. No, I would not like to buy a rose for the other girl I am out with. Life is full of unnecessary questions, and the answer to those questions is already written all over my face by the time I hear “Would you like”. But maybe I wouldn’t be so quick to say no if the questions were phrased in a way that shows what they really mean. “Would you like to pay an extra $12 for me to doodle on your toe with a toothpick?” “Would you like to make the transition from blindly stuffing your face to pure gluttony?” “Spare any change?” And yet, my answer still remains a firm no, no, and NO.
