Clearly I'm Easily Amused.

I work with a man about my dad's age who is constantly dropping these colloquialisms that have obviously been around for a while but I've never heard. He is an absolute pro at slipping them casually into conversation. I'm totally jealous.

Some of his latest gems:
Nervous as a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs.
Busy as a one legged man in an ass kicking contest.

I don't know why, but these seriously crack me up. I got to thinking - why is it that middle aged men are so good at hokey sayings and really, really bad jokes? I think I want to be good at these things too. So I'm starting a collection.

Some more I like:
Hotter than a redheaded roofer in Palm Springs in July.
It's like trying to herd cats.
Raining like a cow peeing on a flat rock.

Got any good ones? I need some dorky one liners for the holidays.

I think most of the ones I know would be tagged as inappropriate content:) I'm so glad you're writing again. I check your blog every day and you always make me chuckle! Oh yeah, check Victoria's Secret Website for boots on sale. Maybe there's a pair that will fit your imagined outfit!

I got 2 sweater dresses by the way. Macys. Good call on that one. But it was Macy's in the 'ham. Alderwood never has what I'm looking for.
PS Glad I amuse others besides myself... ;)
