Review: Two Words Period



Two Words Period. It doesn't get much simpler than that. A minimalistic approach at breaking the ice in a conversation or inserting humor into a situation. Richard Reutter founded Two Words Period in early 2013 with the following mission statement:

Two Words Period was created with the idea that humor can make an impact and have purpose through creativity rather than crudeness. Although prop humor may seem a thing of the past, quickly sliding a card across the table to someone with the brief and specific message seems to instantly gain the attention and often laughter of the recipient regardless of age. The idea was to create something that was simple in concept but heavy in impact.


A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of receiving a packet of cards from Richard. In it were a selection of high quality cards with simple sayings that could be used in a myriad of situations. I was excited to put them to use!


The first card I chose to implement said simply,

NAILED IT.

I had recently bought an eclectic gift for a friend that was an unusual combination of pop culture references. It was the perfect embodiment of the strange and twisted humor this person has.

I placed the card in with the gift because in terms of finding the perfect gift, I felt I'd "nailed it!"




The next card I used said

THANK YOU.

I placed it in with our tip at dinner one night after a particularly pleasant server had attended us.


A couple of the cards I felt were good reminders to keep throughout the day. I placed one on my fridge that said,

EAT CAKE.

... to remind me that its important to enjoy the sweet things in life.

Another said,

JUST RELAX.

I have that one pinned up on my vanity mirror. I need to constantly remind myself of this as I tend to over think.


There are several other cards in the packet that I am looking forward to having the opportunity to use. My favorite in the whole pack said, "NICE PARKING." I thought for sure that would be the first one I'd use. There are so many people who seem to think that the lines in a parking lot are merely a suggestion. I just knew there would be someone taking up 3 spots just asking for me to leave this card! Sadly, I've not had the chance to use it yet. People seem to have good parking karma at that moment.

The variety pack that I received can be purchased on their website for $10.95. There were a dozen cards in my variety pack. Apart from the ones previously mentioned, I also have

FOLLOW ME.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

NOBODY CARES. 
(probably my next favorite after Nice Parking) 

ICE BREAKER.

CALL ME.

and 
NICE LIFE. 

My cards came in a handy envelope that keeps them protected. I keep it in my purse so I have them at the ready when opportunity strikes.

There are several other cards available as well as tee shirts. Eventually Richard hopes to add a customize option so you can create your own Two Words. If that were an option right now, I would order cards that say, "YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL." or "HEY HANDSOME." I think leaving that card where it might come as a surprise to someone would be a great ice breaker.

  9. You can express a lot of meaning with 2 words. I would choose Good Job! as my 2 words.
