Does anyone have an expression they almost always use? One that becomes synonymous with you? Something that, whenever you say it, your friends kind of roll their eyes because you always say that??
Well, anyone who knows me in real life knows that I seem to always identify something that's bothersome or irritating as "ANNOYING". If you think about it, though, it's a great, descriptive term. Someone cuts you off? Really long check-out lines? Trash can full? No one replaced the toilet paper? Annoying, right?
Well, imagine my surprise when my 2-1/2 yr old darling grandson, who is still not speaking a whole lot of words, starting saying today "...nnoying"?? He and I often take little walks around their neighborhood in SF, where parking spots are at a premium. I, of course, talk non-stop, commenting on everything we see, including how annoying it is when small cars take up an entire parking spot; or a scooter takes up an entire parking spot.
Today, on our walk around their block and to the park, all of a sudden he pipes in with "...nnoying", "whole spot" and "nice". I thought it was kinda funny, although I can't say that my daughter and her husband were laughing much when we got back to their house and he was still saying "...nnoying"... But seriously, don't ya think it's a great word??
What're ya gonna do?? If that's the worst thing he learns from me, it won't be bad, right?
So, what are you most favorite expressions?? I want to hear them...and I promise I won't say that anyone's expressions are annoying!
Hope you all have had a wonderful Mother's Day.
Love to you all,
