That's So Cliche

Nothing, I've got nothing new to say.  I have a bunch of thoughts, for sure, but nothing new.  Really, when I stop and think about it, whatever I might have to say has been said before,  most likely by me.  I know this to be true, because I have gone back to some past posts and found that I have repeated myself a couple or three times.
Perhaps I will start to write my posts in cliches.  Really, think about it, cliches say it all.
Ha! Cliche Site
Let me give it a whirl and jump in with both feet.
As plain as the nose on your face, I'm at the end of my rope. My stomach is tied up in knots.  I'm not going to beat around the bush.  I'm waiting with baited breath for the ink to dry, the other shoe to drop, and the dust to settle.  I'm like a lost dog in the high woods. I'm having a bad hair day, day after day. I could go on and on with this half baked idea but there is no rhyme or reason.

Okay enough is enough.   That's what happens when the "the cat got your tongue."

Anyway, as you can see, my head is in a fog today.

My favorite is this one:  "Show them how the cow ate the cabbage."  huh?
Yea, the explanation is this:
1. To confront someone concerning a perceived wrong, slight, injury or insult.

Do you have a favorite?


  1. Fun post! "At the end of my rope" is one of my favorites. Still use it often.

  2. Two things came to mind while reading this post. First was my grandmother's tendency to mix cliches so that she would end up saying things like "If you can't beat 'em, shoot 'em." and "Don't count your chickens all in one basket." These often ended up being accidentally profound--or at least so incomprehensible as to seem so. Second, I once did an entire post from Chinese fortune cookie sayings I had collected over a long period of time. It was kind of fun.

    Also--I could spend all day on that cliche site learning about cliches I've never heard of before.
