Today, we’ll start with the basics;
smiling in an insightful way,
then saying “Aha!” in a tone that suggests,
“That’s just what I thought you might say.”
Tomorrow, to kick off, a workshop
entitled What it Means to Be Real.
For the rest of the day, we’ll be working on saying,
“And how does that make you feel?”
First thing Wednesday morning:
Strategies for Not Yawning.
Then later in the day, an extremely pressing issue:
glancing at the clock when the client takes a tissue.
We won’t say a word on Thursday,
till our silence resounds through the room.
(If the client can’t think of a subject worth raising,
it’s fine to keep totally shtum.)
On Friday, to finish, a challenge:
(Don’t worry, not as hard as it sounds.)
We’ll be practising saying, “We need to end there.
That’ll be 55 pounds.”
