I collected a set of expressions I heard over the weekend–and I did not watch the Oscars ceremony–and share them in a moment of Monday morning whimsy:
“Sir says the service is all on the surface.”
“Please try to stay dry” (This works better if you remember that many people tend to pronounce t like d.)
I went to a school auction and heard someone say “I’m not bitter that we could not find a better bidder.” (Please remind me what Peter Piper picked.)
“I went to a kids-free conference.” To which I replied “Is that the first time you really enjoyed a visit to KFC?”
“Whether the weather improves or not…”
“There’s no matter that made me madder…”
A high schooler interviewed me over the weekend for a project and, among other things, asked what hobbies I had. I forgot to mention to at word play is one of them.
