Jon says thing to be encouraging that often come off as something less noble.
Yesterday we worked on painting my bike, which required hanging it on a rope for easy access to paint and dry. I spent the day painting but moved the bike upside down so I could get at some different angles.
When Jon saw the bike he said, "Did you move the bike?"
- Wow. Good job. Good for you.
He also once said to me "It's not your fault that no one taught you how to run fast. Or throw things."
