Speaking Without Consequence

If you could say anything to anyone without consequence, what would you say, and to whom?

Why in the world would I say something if there wasn't going to be a consequence? Isn't the consequence the whole point of saying stuff in the first place?

When something brilliant comes out of my mouth, I want feedback and rapt attention and results, dammit!

Plus I'm a firm believer in the idea that if you can't think of something nice to say you shouldn't say anything at all. It's the reason my tongue is often bitten to shreds. And if I've done nothing else in this life of mine I've at least learned when whatever I've got to say or suggest or advise is going to fall on deaf ears and I might as well save my breath for a time when it matters.

Well in a perfect world I'd be like that all the time. Mostly I'm not really the strong silent type at all and have been known to say things that generate the wrong kind of chain reactions.

But to say something and have NOTHING happen? That would be a real bummer. Might as well start talking to trees and door knobs.
