Sh*t people say
It’s a funny old language isn’t it? Ever stop to think about the things we say? Such as……
“Well wouldn’t you like to know” – Well yes, that’s kinda why we ask…..
“That’s for me to know and you to find out” – Well that’s where you come in, genius.
“Ah, that would be telling” – Yes, that would be telling, THAT’S WHY WE FRIGGING WELL ASK!!! We ask, you tell, that’s how a conversation works….*sigh*
“Believe you me” – Erm, what? Want to say that again with the words the right way round?
“Basic fail” – Ok, someone help me out here – when people say this, are they being ironic? Is it a joke I’m not getting? Has grammar been thrown out the window?
“Bare jokes” – 😦 . At some stage, “bare” suddenly became another word for “more”………yeah.
“At the end of the day” – Slightly OT, but anyway…..Used to use this regularly (it’s a metaphor that works – I occasionally speak in metaphor. You may have noticed.), but now thanks to a certain J.Kyle’s programme, I try (and sometimes fail) to avoid it. They’ve turned it into a cliched term, which bugs me.
Random thoughts – How long is a donkey’s year? Why exactly is Nora flaming? Who first put Christ on a bike? Just what time do the cows come home?
