Instead I'm going to post some videos of phrases I love to say and probably use way too often.
Let's begin with Grease. I will quote this entire scene. You can't stop me once I start. My brother and I used to act it out at the dinner table. A lot. I'll say, "Rockin' and rollin' and whatnot" to describe pretty much whatever I'm doing. I also like to say, "What's the matter with me, baby? What's the matter with you?"
Let's be honest. This makes me incredibly awesome.
My 15-year-old son says, "What?" a lot. I mean A LOT a lot. I think he does this to get on my nerves. So I quote this movie in response.
Face it. This is unquestionably excellent parenting.
This is my all-time favorite reaction in any argument ever. I rarely argue with people, so I mostly just say this during fake arguments that I'm reenacting for friends. The reenactment goes like this: "So then I said....and that douchebag said...and I told him to..." "Did you really say that?" "No, but I was thinking it!"
A couple of years ago when Kate's boyfriend broke up with her, I said, "Next time something like that happens, you say this: You can't fire me! I quit!" Or you follow the lead of Ross Gellar.
Dignity. Pass it on.
I like to use the phrase "up in here" quite often. Probably too often. Does it paint me as an obnoxious white girl? Am I using it ironically? I think I enjoy saying it too much for it to be ironic.
Y'all gonna make me lose my mind...
Almost on a daily basis, I say to my daughter, Kate, the following:
And now we come to the creepiest thing I say way too often. You'd be amazed at how many conversations you can slip this into.
Lastly, I say this all the damn time.
It's a great way to exit a conversation.
