(Language warning – if you’re sensitive to that, don’t read further.)

I’ve got to add this, because it’s got me laughing so hard…for the zillionth time.

My brain has a strange wiring (ha! yea one of many!).

This one, in particular, means that I wind up spouting phrases that I don’t even realize aren’t real phrases – at all – until I am confused at my friends falling-over-laughing….

I’ve come to realize this particular flight of brain strangness has to do with mixing metaphors. And I spout them off without realizing what I’m saying, in all seriousness…

Then when I realize what I’ve said I can’t stop laughing.

I shared this with a friend from up NorthEast, Lee, who also got to laughing…

Hope you enjoy these (as much as I embarass myself inadvertently creating them).

Do you do this too or know someone who does??? Please add yours!! I could use more good laughs!

*shaking my head*


OK, clearly not ready to sleep, I read the list. I am laughing my ass off. I will share this with Elizabeth, and with the circle of men I coach on Thursday nights. I have a theory that men partially live for the moments when women say stuff like this. I know I do!

My favorite is “What a pain in the bitch!”. I think I am going to associate that mentally with a funny line I synthesized recently and have enjoyed using: “I’m going to rip that guy a used asshole!”
