This One Time, At Band Camp…

4 comments May 20th, 2005at 01:53pm Posted by Eli

I was just reflecting on people’s catchphrases – for instance, one guy I used to play softball with seemed to start every anecdote off with “This girl I dated…”, and one of our managers is often associated with the phrase “…knows a guy who can get us a deal on…”, although I only get that one second-hand. There was also a guy in my high school whose notorious ultimate rejoinder was, “I’ve talked to teachers!”

I don’t think I have a catchphrase (other than maybe “Dude!”), but I’m not sure if one is ever aware of one’s own catchphrase.

Do any of you have a catchphrase, or know anyone with a good one? Don’t be shy, it’s not like “This girl I dated” is really that hard to top…

    What is “mmmmm” for 1000, Alex?

    You do have a catchphrase, Eli, you’ve just vowed never, ever to say it:

    “Tripindicular!”

    Give in to temptation, Eli. Say it. You know you want to.

    My dad had one when I was growing up that I sort of like….now. “Reach for that again, you’ll withdraw a bloody stump.”

    I can’t think of what mine would be, but I’m sure there are plenty. My father used to like to say “Shit-eating” as in “You shit-eating cow” when the cow kicked the milk bucket. We started saying it and he asked us where we learned that type of language. We were able to stand tall and say “From you.” I don’t think he uses that phrase, anymore. He no longer has the cattle:)

    Apparently, I preface a lot of my comments with “Actually” — “ackshully” — I’m never aware of saying it, and only know I do it because my husband makes fun of me for it.

    I think I might begin a lot of sentences with “apparently,” too.
