I think it’s cool that we were talking about the International Space Station yesterday and today the news mentioned that the three Americans there voted from space.
Maybe you’re asking yourself what that has to do with the price of eggs in Chicago.
My reply would be that even a blind squirrel finds an acorn once in awhile.
And even though I’m as nervous as a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs, I must admit that today is…
National Cliché Day!
My children were once bored and started flipping through the phone book. Before I knew it they were as happy as a pig in mud. A laugh a minute.
Okay, that’s not accurate, they were giggling like crazy. And suddenly very thankful for their names as they saw some unfortunate souls in our town with some last names that Bart Simpson would go nuts for.
So, I’m sure that children will find it hilarious to go through the cliche site and learn what some common cliches mean.
I do suggest that parents look at the site first. There are a few cliches that I found as welcome as a skunk at a lawn party. But most of them tickled my fancy.
