Contemplating the phrase: “Have a good ONE!”

Posted By on June 22, 2023

Using the pronoun “one” seems out of place and too casual when using the common phrase … “Have a good one.” It is heard all the time in day to day conversation (even on television business news shows Have a good day — you know who you are Lauren Simonetti — HA!) and at least for me, the phrase is over used (I know, get over it Rich)! 

Someone posted that the phrase is far more useful than “Have a Good Day” … which requires a little more thought as to “morning, day, night, etc,” but is also overused. 

Still these well wishes are a way to end a conversation and brighten up the day for someone else … whether its a TV interview, a spouse, a friend or the kids on the way to school. 

So …

Have a Good One … or Good Day!    🙃
