You know... everything is as easy as pie or a piece of cake!
I've tried to wean myself off of them, but everday's a struggle ladies and gents. =)
Well, I've been writing this blog for a few years and, as you can imagine, read quite a few other blogs and news articles daily to keep up to date.
Aside from food puns, I've found a few more phrases that need to stop:
1) Saying you "love me some ____________." Example: I love me some Wendy's!
Really? Do you "love you some" Wendy's? Well, so do I, but I don't feel the need to add "me some" to the sentence. It was cute for a while, but please stop.
2) Attempting to show emphasis by putting a period in-between each word. Example: BEST. SHOW. EVER.
Not needed, and now that my grandparents are doing this it's basically lost all impact.
3) Attempting to show emphasis by putting the word "period" after you make a statement. Example: Ina Garten will never not use good vanilla, PERIOD!
I'm all confused as to what punctuation mark you want at the end of that sentence. If you had done that in the 80s, your Apple II would have exploded.
That's it for now. Perhaps this will become a regular series as I discover more. Feel free to leave your ideas on phrases that need to be phased out in the comments.
