The 7-Day Good Morning Challenge

Here, dear readership, is a challenge to you: for the next seven days, when walking about town, whenever you approach someone walking in the other direction before noon, say “Good Morning” to them. It doesn’t matter whether they’re young or old, familiar or a stranger, looking grumpy or looking chatty, say “Good Morning” to them all.

Then report back after seven days.

I’m looking forward to your results. Personally, I doubt it will be annoying to to many folks. If it were “Happy Tuesday!!!” maybe. : )

Does “about town” mean Charlottetown or is this generic….do you want to know how it plays out in, say, Burlington, Vermont?

I tried this in Regina, SK. Walked around telling a bunch of people “Good Morning!”, “Good Morning!”… People usually looked at me oddly and said, “It’s 4PM.”.

Must only work in Charlottetown.
