November has been deemed National Diabetes Month by the American Diabetes Association, which is important for my line of work...however, this month is also dedicated to cliches. In fact, November 3rd was official cliche day. So here starts a thread of your past time favorites that you heard from your grandparents, your more recent cliches that you still hear from your parents, and new age cliches that rule because we made them.
Here's a few to get your cliche juices flowing...
"An idle mind is the Devil's workshop" (Debbie Finch)
"If ________ jumped off a cliff, would you jump too?" (Debbie Finch)
"Remember who you are and who's you are" (The Parents Finch)
"Don't take any wooden nickels" (Grandma Finch)
"It's not what you deserve, it's what you negotiate" (Grandpa Finch)
"There are no stupid questions, just stupid people"
...and remember, to say "not to be too cliche" is probably the most cliched thing you could ever say...
And please don't forget that...
