Instead of having an opinion, have a sandwich!

It’s 100% okay not to have an opinion on some things. Participation is not mandatory. You don't have to have an opinion if you don't want to have an opinion. In fact, it's okay not to have an opinion.


You totally don’t have to share your thoughts on a topic you know nothing about. Or, even worse, a topic you don’t know as well as you think. You officially have my permission to rest your tired brain.

What I don't know could fill a Costco-sized tub of mayonnaise. I've been trying to take my own advice. I don't always shut up when I should. Should I be shutting up now? It's a distinct possibility. But I'm going to risk it.

There is no law that says you have to tweet or comment or blabber. Not yet, at least. Ha, ha. That’s the plot of a terrible dystopian sci-fi novel. A future where everyone is forced to constantly excrete opinions.

Yes, sure, fine. Your half-baked, knee-jerk opinion may have some merit. It could even be partially worthwhile. I have no doubt that you’re funny and charming and lovely. I just don’t want you to feel any pressure.
