Cliches are those saying we all know, and mostly hate to hear, but just can’t stop ourselves from saying. They are little bits of sayings that have been handed down over the years and do mean a lot, but we get so tired of hearing. Like, “If your friend jumped off a bridge…”. Obviously we would not jump too, or at least we probably wouldn’t jump too, so what’s the point in saying them? Well, we just have to… “Better Safe Than Sorry”, “Don’t Cry Over Spilled Milk” and “You Get What You Pay For” are all really, really common sayings we probably use way too much and when we don’t use them or say anything then we get, “Cat Got Your Tongue?”
How to celebrate – Find the source for your favorite cliche’. Make up a new cliche’. Count how many cliche’s you use a day.
October 13th Silly Sayings Day
Today was supposedly created by the “Queen of Holidays”. I have no idea who that is. “If you are too open minded… your brains will fall out”, or “I am on a seafood diet… I see food and I eat it.” Most are sayings we have heard before and really aren’t all that funny after you have heard them like 500 times. So today you need to be creative. Come up with some new silly sayings of your own, ones we’ve never heard before. But make sure they make sense since this is not “Stupid Sayings Day”. We can all use a good laugh during our day, maybe now more than ever before. So if silly sayings can bring a smile to someone’s face, it’s been worthwhile.
How to celebrate – Look up some silly sayings you haven’t heard before. Write your own silly sayings. Pretend you are mute.
