It’s one week till Christmas!!! Aside from excessive exclamation point usage, that means one thing — it’s Answer the Phone Like Buddy the Elf Day!!!
For those of you unfamiliar with the concept, answering your phone is what happens when you don’t let all your calls go to voicemail. It’s something you can do any day, not just on special occasions like today.
Of course, what makes today special is not the answering of your phone, but the greeting — Buddy the Elf, what’s your favorite color?
It may seem like a random question, but if asked correctly it can be so much more.
It can break up the monotony of pre-holiday prep. It can invite others to be a little silly. Remind yourself to pay attention to and value those little moments like answering the phone.
Basically, it’s a great way to snap yourself and others out of your pre-holiday stress cycle.
It’s pure joy and innocence in the form of a simple question. So, on that note, I just have one more thing to say — what’s your favorite color?
…just for fun:
