Remember when you were like thirteen and you were walking down the halls of your junior high and you saw two of your classmates sucking face next to one of their lockers and you heard someone yell, “Get a room!” and everyone started laughing, including yourself. But you were still pretty fresh-faced and naive and didn’t really know what “Get a room!” really meant or implied other than you got the drift that it meant that nobody wanted to watch so much PDA, especially before lunch. Then you would occasionally use the phrase when you saw similar scenarios and it always got a laugh, and you felt a little sheepish because you didn’t really exactly know the meaning until you were like seventeen and watching 90210 (even though you swore it was totally stupid) and then suddenly the lightbulb lit up and you were like, “Ooohhhhh. Got it.”
(I had a another similar experience with the phrase “hot and bothered” which I used as a synonym to “upset” and “angry” and “flabbergasted.” But, I digress…)
Anyway, I have a great new idea for a catch-phrase that somebody probably already thought up three years ago, but I swear, for me, this idea is original:
“Get a blog.”
To be used: When someone is rambling incessantly (especially about themselves).
Works best: After a roll of the eyes.
I’m planning on using it: During church.
Would also be fitting: On a T-shirt.
What do you think?
