Today is Ancestor Appreciation Day. I admire people who have the perseverance to discover their roots. It is a task I am not patient enough to tackle!
We are composites of things we see and hear. The most memorable we incorporate into our everyday conversations. Here are just a few of my favorites:
All right then. (Billy Bob Thornton, Slingblade)
Alllll RIIIIIGHTY then! (Jim Carey, The Mask)
Yippee skippy. (Ms. Piggy)
Don’t get all twitterpated!
We’ll just have to wait and see what happens. (KL about to partake in sushi for the first time!)
What don’t kill ya, makes ya stronger.
God willin’ and the creek don’t rise.
Whatever trips your trigger!
Whatever spins your wheels!
Yippee ki yay ______!(explective) (Bruce Willis, Die Hard)
Smooth move, Ace!
When hell freezes over!
Hold your horses!
Larrupin’! (My grandfather)
I’ll snatch you bald-headed! (Ditto)
Jeez O Pete!
Criminitlies! (Don’t know if it’s a word and don’t know how to spell it for sure . . .)
Oh, boo/oh, waa. (As in boo-hoo)
What a goofer.
Celebrate your roots, and express yourself! C
