Max's Motto

 Max Meories Volume 8: Max Mottos - 4/26/09 


Today, Max asked me why I said "You can do it, we can help," as we drove out of the Home Depot after doing a little shopping. I explained that this was Home Depot's Motto, or Slogan...

This of course led to a discussion of what a motto/slogan was, and we rattled off several, including McDonalds, Sonic, Burger King, etc...   He asked me what WalMart's was.... I told him "Save Money, Live Easier," and he promptly corrected me... Dad, it's "Save Money, Live BETTER."   I stood corrected....

Well, Max then asked what MY slogan was.... I told him that the basic idea that I've been trying to live by was "The more you appreciate, the happier you are."   

I asked Max to come up with a good slogan for himself...

Within moments he had a few....

"Wash yourself ever Sunday."    I asked if washing yourself every Sunday was enough... he then changed it to "Wash yourself every Sunday AND Wednesday."    Much better.

He then came up with a couple others.... "Don't shoot people" was his next.... but his third was my favorite:

"Love big, not small!"

That's a great one to live by, for sure!
