Ten-Word Tuesday: The Power of Words

"Yes" and "No" are powerful; what about "I don't know"?

I guess that means you don't know? ;)

Sometimes we need to reach a point where we realize we don't know something before we can start learning. But that's longer than ten words. ;)

Good question! My hubby told me just yesterday that he wishes I would reserve "I don't know" for times that I genuinely don't know, instead of it being a euphemism for "I don't care."

I guess in some ways it does sound like the easy way out. On the other hand, when you compare the size of my brain with the size of the universe, I think it's a miracle that I manage to know anything.
