I'm going to give you 'a heads up'.
['A heads up' is an interesting expression, don't you think?]
Well, that's what I'm going to give you....
Here's my 'heads up': I'm thinking about changing my blog name.
"Minding My Own Business" is really not true.
I mind everybody ELSE'S business.
So for this moment I'm trying out 'Coffee Break' as my blog name. I'll try out other titles and maybe even have a poll to find out which one you like the best.
Speaking of interesting expressions (as we were doing), have you noticed that 'No problem' is EVERYWHERE?
Sam and I were eating out the other day and the young waitress brought us our food. We said, 'Thank You', and she said 'No problem'.
I almost yelled at her, 'Of course it's no problem! I'm the paying customer!'
(Well, I've wanted to say that many times lately.)
[I think we need to teach our young people how to say "You're welcome", don't you?!?!]
Another expression is 'at the end of the day'.
That expression is everywhere.
And all I want to say is, 'at the end of the day is night time!'
[I'm used to saying (and hearing), 'When all is said and done.']
So speech changes.
When we were in Brazil back in the early 80's Sam's brother and his family (Rob was 2 1/2) came to see us.
Somehow we got to talking about back in the States and what was 'in'.
I remember Steve saying, "An expression that's used all the time nowadays when you're disgusted is 'gag with me with a spoon.'"
Well, Sam and I were all ready to say that when we came back to the States and when we got home (2 years later) no one was saying 'gag me with a spoon'!!!
[Well, now I'm blogging about it, at least.]
Clearly there's not much to blog about tonight.
Oh, I DID get a good health report today!
So here's my 'heads up': at the end of the day, no problem!!!
