Phrases of the Year
Tuesday, 2007 September 4 - 10:06 pm
I am having trouble deciding which is my favorite phrase of the year so far.

The two contenders:

- "Wide stance". Whenever I am confronted about doing something inappropriate, I will say that I was simply taking a "wide stance".

- "Everywhere like such as". Whenever I am asked where something is, I will answer "everywhere like such as"... or occasionally, "The Iraq".

Did you make those up, or did you hear them somewhere? They're both pretty cool.

As for me, I haven't made anything up but I have for sure grown tired of two this year:

1. "Wait for it" as a space filler when someone has given (or noted) some set up but needs you to hang in there for a moment before the conclusion.

2. "...is Henin" or "...is Roddick" as used by tennis commentators, as in "He's really struggling with his backhand... is Roddick". "She's looking very good on placement and pace -- she's having a great day out there... is Henin".

McEnroe seems to have avoided this new speech pattern curse. Praise McEnroe. McEnroe rocks.
