Be Excellent to Each Other

One of my favorite goofy movies is Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure. An academy award winner it is not, but the plot does have a good message. Rufus, George Carlin, starts off talking about the future and how great it is - bowling averages are way up, mini-golf scores are way down and how everything is great.

The main plot of the movie has Bill and Ted traveling through the portals of time trying to complete a history project. At one point they end up in some futuristic place. The leader of the futuristic place, none other than Clarence Clemons of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, recognizes who they are and says, it's you. All Bill and Ted can muster at first is, yes it's us. Then they decide to philosophize with the people and Bill says, Be excellent to each other.

It might have been corny, but it was truly the meaning for the movie; it is how everything became great. It is also a good philosophy for life.

If we can all be excellent to each other, just imagine how great things can be.

Make someone's day and perform a random act of kindness. It is a most excellent thing to do.
