To Be Or Not To Be...?

I was walking back to my cousins house from Ohr Dovid seeing Ed, and it dawned on me that really "feel better" doesn't mean so much. Well, obviously, yeah you're wishing someone that they feel better. But we can do better than that. Just because one feels better doesn't mean they are better. Therefore, the new phrase should be: "Be better?"

Dude 1: Hey how are you doing?
Dude 2: BH alright, I'm sick.
Dude 1: Oh, with what?
Dude 2: Fever, headache, stomach virus.
Dude 1: Oh man be better dude.

See? Substitute "feel" for "be" for a second. No where does he say he should actually be better, just feel better. Here he's saying he should actually be better.

Maybe we can change things. From now on, say "be better." Hey, if enough people do it, it can spread far and wide. And far...

Let's go Mets (had to throw that in there).

Man, you have a lot of time to think about stuff. The phenomenon of "feel better". So deep, I'm drowning in it. Hehe.

I hope you're enjoying your Pesach!

Nice insight! I like it. It be's positive and upbeat. I be's liking it a lot. Seriously...I do like it and I will try to use it when I can. Everyone can try to be better, even if they aren't sick to start with!
