I’m sort of a harmless, garden variety rebel. Hyphenated catchphrases make my skin crawl. It still pains me to even type ‘stay-cation’ and ‘man cave’.
Now there is ‘drop the mic’, apparently coined for some diva or other (male or female) who hit the high note and flounced off the stage. I really don’t care where it started.
But the other day I coined my own axiom when something so clever flowed onto the page (in my journal, no less), that I threw down my pen.
Drop the pen!
That’s for all those writers out there who amaze themselves with their own cleverness. Of course this is probably the only place I will share the phrase since I’m a solitary writer living in a state of semi-hermitage.
Are there any pop culture expressions you either love or hate? Tell me in the comments.
