Talking About Failure

Akiko: How did your presentation Go over this morning at the meeting?

Gerry: It was a complete Flop!

Akiko: I don’t believe it. You spent weeks working on that presentation.

Gerry: It wasn’t the presentation that Bombed. It was my big idea. Leona called it a Retread of what I presented last year, and she was Not in the least impressed.

Akiko: Ouch, that’s pretty Harsh. What did the others say?

Gerry: Overall, the response was Dismal. Everyone else was trying to be Tactful, but it Boiled down to the fact that they thought it was Pathetic.

Akiko: I’m sure that’s not true. And if they didn’t Jump up and down about the idea right away, they’re Bound to come around after you give them more details.

Gerry: I don’t know…

Akiko: Come on, aren’t you the same guy who told me that you Didn’t know the meaning of the word ‘quit’?

Gerry: That was before this morning’s presentation.

Akiko: Are you giving up on your great idea?

Gerry: No, I guess not, but it’ll take some Reworking

Akiko: Good, then you won’t give up?

Gerry: I guess not. What the heck? I’m only risking more Humiliation and failure, right?

Akiko: That’s the spirit!
