Saying “We can’t do that.” was nothing but a challenge to this guy I grew up with.
It was like you were taunting him, begging him to do it like an old mobster in confession begging for forgiveness.
I was always more of a rule follower.
But his attitude usually made people laugh and it opened a few doors for him.
Looking for attention for your art though…this idea might be worth considering.
What if you did what you thought you couldn’t?
What if I did?
The most newsworthy thing to do is usually the one you’re most afraid of. The thing you joke, “But of course, we can’t do that.”
