Do... or do not. There is no try.
This is old school, I'll grant you. But indulge me for a moment, won't you? Because, really? No try? Seems a little harsh. A little binary. A little, I don't know, suffocating.
The only reason I bring this up is because the sock-in-progress for my Sidekick appears to be taking a position, and I'm trying to figure out how to respond:
I guess I respond with, "'Do' it is?"
(I don't know why, but this reminds me a little of one of my favorite quotes ever. A locally-famous and enthusiastic Lakers basketball announcer once said during the replay of Kobe shooting a pretty outrageous three-pointer: "Kobe planted his feet, said 'here it comes', and here it comes (pause) it did!" Here it comes it did! HA! That's great.)
Do... or do not go on about your business now. Or, you know what? Try. Try to go on about your business. I think that'll be fine.
