Having Fun with Catch-Phrases
Dusting Off Cobwebs
Here I am again on HP and I am very glad. Been taking care of my Mom, with the Chemo and even though I haven't been writing hubs, trying my best but not having the gumption or feeling-in-the-mood to write, to be Part Of or being Involved in this great community. In the many hours I was with my Mom, I took notes, alot of them. It is almost over whelming. I LOVE the words, and how we talk in our society, so I thought of something light and easy for me, since I have a little Writer's Block. But here it goes.
Phrases with Friends
I went to work the other day and told my friends and co-workers that I was writing a story about Catch-Phrases and that I needed their help with the story and to think of some (they know I write a little) and something AMAZING and FUN happened! And they did help!! It was so cute, because I would be standing there, and someone would just BURST OUT with their own catch phrase. First, I was so engrossed in work, I had forgotten what was going on and one of my very lovely bosses came up behind me and said "When Pigs Fly." First I just stood there, "mmmmm, okay" then I said "Oh, great, THANKS!" Then I would proceed trying to write it on my palm, I got INKY that day. But I had a good day that day, and I think it was because of this HUB. LOL.
