  • Mood:

Similar ideas, markedly different

With people leaving and the weekend coming up, I've been noodling about the following statements, each of which are similar but (to me) markedly different:
  • Have a nice weekend.
  • Have a good weekend.
  • Have an enjoyable weekend.
  • Have a pleasant weekend.
  • Have a fun weekend.
Personally, I use either the middle one or the last one. I can't say that I'm overly fond of the word 'nice'. I think that using the word pleasant here is too bland. And finally, good seems to me to be making value judgements that I'm not qualified to make.

I'm curious what others think of the different statements.
