You know that phrase “simmer down”? I say it sometimes when the kids are trying to break my eardrums with their loudness…
Crappy Boy says he is going to give one of his toys to Crappy Baby.
Crappy Baby is happy and excited and starts screaming:
Crappy Boy holds out the toy and then says:
Sizzle down! Close.
This is especially funny to hear because just last night I said to Crappy Papa:
Close. (That’s the way the cookie crumbles & that’s the way the ball bounces)
By the way, I do this all the time. It isn’t that I don’t know the idioms, it is that I think of more than one at the same time. I use both and jumble them together.
Like last month when our DVD player died:
(Bit the dust & kicked the bucket)
I do this so often that I started writing them down. Of course I can’t find the journal that I wrote them in so that was a super good idea.
I’ll find it eventually.
Until then, you’ll have to cool your horses.
