Every cliche in the world…

When the going gets tough, the tough get going.

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. (wait that’s not a cliche is it…)

This is the first day of the rest of your life.

It’s the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine.



Jack: Can I sleep for a hundred hours tomorrow?

me: Of course. Maybe then you won’t get up on the wrong side of the bed.

Jack: But I always get up on THIS side of the bed. (points to the side NOT against the wall)

me: It’s just a saying, sweetie. It’s called a cliche.

Jack: Why?

me: It just means that everyone says it and it really doesn’t mean anything. Sort of.

Jack: Then why say it?

me: I just meant that sometimes you wake up cranky.

Jack: Then just say that.

me: Don’t get your undies in a knot.

Jack: What?

me: That’s another one.

Jack: Stoppit.
