One of the craziest things I’ve ever done is listen to my friend Mat Weddle, vocalist of Obadiah Parker (link opens Spotify).
Way back in the early 2000s, we worked together at Blockbuster Video, and after renting some movies to a customer, I told the customer to “have a good one!”
“I don’t really like that phrase,” Mat said.
“What phrase?” I asked.
“Have a good one,” Mat answered.
“What do you mean?” I inquired.
“It’s so inspecific. Have a good one WHAT? Have a good one day? Have a good one life? Have a good one minute? Have a good one second?”
“…have a good one donut?” I suggested.
“Yeah, it could even mean that,” said Mat.
Ever since that day, whenever somebody says “Have a good one,” I always have to wonder, “…a good one what?”
And then I want donuts.
