QW 022312 “A compelling reason”

We walked, walked, walked. We talked, talked, talked. During our conversations, a question was posed. “What’s the compelling reason in doing that?” I wasn’t poised to shoot back and answer the question cogently. I was like, “Well, … ah…we’d like to facilitate people to uh, …” My friend goes like “Facilitate? (Interpretation: Vague, weak, and unappealing. )” The other time, I tried again like, “We’d like to contribute to developing uh,… blah, blah, blah” My friend: “Contribute. It’s getting better. (Interpretation; It’s not good enough.)” In addition to the insufficiency of my language skills to render my thoughts exactly as they were without hesitation (I hate such lame excuses, though), I didn’t have simple, clear and cogent answer to this question to begin with. I’m afraid anyone who reads this QW piece has no clue for guessing what I’m talking about here. Well, I very much appreciate your patience to let me go on a bit further.

I interpreted “a compelling reason to do something” in this context as a powerful and convincing reason why I cannot help doing something. My clear sense of objectives, so to speak. I looked up the adjective “compelling” in the Collins Thesaurus in my SII e-dictionary and learned that its synonyms are convincing, powerful, forceful, cogent, and irrefutable. Yes, IRREFUTABLE. What a cool adjective. Thank you so much, my friend. You left the compelling reason for me to give further thoughts to my compelling reason in doing the project. By the time I meet you over there in a month, I’ll be ready to verbalize THE compelling reason clearly, cogently and irrefutably.
