TBWCYL Day 169 - That is soooo Cliche'

So, yesterday I was supposed to "Speak only in cliches" all day. The problem with this is I am not good at this. I tried to think of cliches to use throughout the day and only came up with a few. The Book listed quite a few for helpful reference but I kept forgetting them. Here are some I did use.

Grab the Bull by the Horns
Sometimes your the windshield, some times your the bug
Knock it out of the Park
You can't tame this Bucking Bronco
Shit or get off the Pot (Ironically, I told myself this one)
It is what it is

I may have used others but I can't remember. I was honestly better at this with Diana than people at work. I don't interact with many people to begin with at my job so when I occasionally had communication with the outside world, my guard was down and I wouldn't remember to do this until about half way through a conversation. I would say that I got off at least one in every long conversation I had.

So, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade,
