I think I may have started something with a certain aardvark. Not that I’m complaining, darling, you are more than welcome to lay your bagpipes in my apartment.

I’m just wondering – what are incentives?

Incentive (as defined by Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary) is:

something that incites or has a tendency to incite to determination or action

Examples are:

  1. The rising cost of electricity provides a strong incentive to conserve energy.
  2. The government offers special tax incentives for entrepreneurs.
  3. The company is offering a special low price as an added incentive for new customers.
The Origins are:

Middle English, from Late Latin incentivum, from neuter ofincentivus stimulating, from Latin, setting the tune, from incentus, past participle of incinere to play (a tune), fromin- + canere to sing — more at chant

First Known Use: 15th century


So, incentives are good things, right?

Not being able to sleep (due to coffee intake) is a good incentive to stop drinking coffee, right?

Not having a pair of shoes to match my DAZZLING new outfit is a good incentive to buy a new pair, right?

Having rough skin, chipped nails and scars on my hands (from rock climbing) is a good incentive to get a manicure, right?

Having a dear friend (who you would really like to meet in person) live a million miles away is a good incentive to buy a fucking plane ticket, right?

Perhaps I should give said good friend an incentive to come visit me, right?

Is this good enough?

  2. James says:

    Oh crikey. Is it next year yet?

  3. Not naughty, Andi – just telling it like it is! 😆

    BTW – love the photo. But I have heard those type of breast implants can really hurt. . .
