I'm Pretty Sure

I use the idiom, “I’m pretty sure….” a lot.  It's ripe with sarcasm and acknowledges that I might not be right, and leaves room for uncertainty for the narrow chance I might be wrong.

Here are some real life examples from today:

Now that I think about it, I’m pretty sure I didn’t eat dinner last night. As much as I love to eat it really does amaze me that I forget sometimes.

Part of me wants to become a teacher so that I can do funny stuff that I read about on  I’m pretty sure this would make my life exponentially more hilarious.

The first sentence of my horoscope today: You may be frustrated by the lack of fun in your life now.  I’m pretty sure I didn’t need the stars to tell me this. 

In other irrelevant news:

A grown adult said to me yesterday, when I causally asked what he was up to, “Going to the gym.  Ya know, doing some curls for the girls.”  This is why I don’t do small talk.

We got new name tags at work.  Mine said, “Super Fabulous.”  I thought that was a bit much. I asked for it to be changed to “Master of Mediocrity.”  Let’s be honest,  it’s better to under promise and over deliver than the opposite.

Totally should. Don't want to give them ideas or set expectations too high. Maybe it should be "Reddy, Set, I'll get to it when I feel like it."
