Cliche (Photo credit: Vermario)
Yes, I know SOCOs are scene of crime officers (I read mysteries occasionally), and no, I am not talking about cops. I am talking about a new organization I am starting to save clichés. I call it “Save our clichés.” I for one am tired of cliché discrimination. clichés are NOT outworn expressions, they are shortcut ways of expressing yourself when you are at a loss for words.
I don’t know exactly what the expression loss for words means, because I have never used that expression. Some people tell me I am never at a loss for words or something less pleasant. However, if you are at a loss for words, I say you should be able to say so in clear understandable English.Do you have a favorite expression? Let it be known. Protect your freedom of speech today Save our clichés.
David and I are so disappointed. Our fitness instructor called to tell us she cancelled the exercise class for today. She said they will ‘make it up’ at the end of the session in April. I said,”wonderful” with great enthusiasm. She didn’t know I was happy they cancelled the class. She thought I was responding to the “make it up” bit. I am a bit parsimonious with the truth.

The instructor said they don’t want seniors slipping and sliding on the icy streets and sidewalks. Good thought, but David left immediately after she called and went to Subway to buy subs for our lunch.
David’s parents met in Siberia, and he lived in Pennsylvania in the 1960s when they had many cold winters. He thinks he is macho man when it comes to snow and ice.
When I was still gainfully employed, I had to go to work in bad weather many days because he always got the car out of the driveway…rain, sleet or snow. (We worked two blocks from each other in those days for the same corporation and commuted together.)
I still haven’t forgiven him for the time I sat in the car for three hours in a huge snow- impeded traffic jam. I almost got myself arrested for indecent exposure. Another five minutes and I was ready to jump out of the car, pull down my pants, and let go.
