Sometimes I’m given a bit of inspiration. When I can, I bottle it up and share it with you, my devoted readers. So here it is, the secret to being honest: sing it (but sing it poorly).
My suggestion for you is this: try it. I’m not kidding. Grab your spouse, or your roommate, or your friend, or your kids and sing them something. You won’t regret it (at least not immediately).
PS-For the record, I do take preaching very seriously, I just don’t take myself seriously.
PPS-Here’s hoping 50-year-old Hans doesn’t look back on this and punch me.
