One that I use a lot is, "Y'gotta understand" and I've figured out that no, people do not have to understand. If people love you they will choose to understand, with or without my explanations.

As for love being thrown around, that would depend on if you have a cookie cutter definition of love. Love is as different as the people and things you love. So therefore, it is entirely possible for me to feel genuine love for you all, and if tell someone that you love them and that falls on deaf ears, it's a painful loss for both...

But if I say I love you? That's MY emotion, and no one, not even you can take that away.

If that's dismissed, there's not much I can do about it, but I feel what I feel--even when I'd rather not.

Got another one.

"It is what it is..."

Usually said when "it" defies description or explanation.

I have a friend who habitually says "needless to say ..." before all kinds of things he says.  I want to laugh every time he says it, since were it true, he shouldn't have to tell me whatever follows.


Oh and Karen that reminds me of "Ain't nothin' but a 'thang".  lol.

"I see what you're saying," is pretty absurd.  If it were so, we should all be using sign language.  How about, "I hear what you're saying"?  Doesn't that make more sense?

My MIL always used a phrase, Serenity, that is similar to yours, and drove my husband freaking nuts with it.

"That's just the way it is..."

I think it's interesting how this region of the world avoids usages of the word "death."

We don't usually say these things: "When I die..." "Daddy died" or "After the death of my Mother, we had to sell the house" "My Uncle is dying."

instead:

"When I leave this world or when I go to meet my maker." "Daddy passed on or passed away." "When Momma went home to be with the Lord, we had to sell the house." My Uncle is in his last days."

While I believe these terms are universal in reverence & compassion: "Late/dearly departed, and the loss of a loved one."

My cousin uses what I think is an old wild west metaphor when he speaks about his own brush with death: "I almost took a dirt nap."

"Life" and its vast depths of meaning.


I don't know why, but "obsolete" has become a dry, hollow, & condescending word to me. Maybe because I'm drawing ever closer to its expression. LOL.

*laughing*

"Obsolete" is the new collectible.



As for death?

It depends on the context, again.

I can say very simply and plainly to members of my own family, "She died."

More cautious with other folk, though...there really is no easy word, though, I agree.

Saying, "she passed away"? I dunno. A bullet is painful even when shot through a silencer.

  NINE  WORDS WOMEN USE

(1) Fine : This  is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and  you need to shut up.

(2) Five  Minutes : If  she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is  only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to  watch the game before helping around the  house.

(3)Nothing : This  is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should  be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in  fine.

(4) Go  Ahead : This  is a dare, not permission. Don't Do  It!

(5) Loud  Sigh : This  is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often  misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an  idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and  arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning  of nothing.)

(6) That's  Okay : This  is one of the most dangerous statements a woman can make  to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard  before deciding how and when you will pay for your  mistake.

(7) Thanks : A  woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you're  welcome. (I want to add in a clause here - This is true, unless  she says 'Thanks a lot' - that is PURE sarcasm and she is not  thanking you at all. DO NOT say 'you're welcome' ,  that will bring on a 'whatever')

(8) Whatever : Is  a woman's way of saying GO  TO HELL

(9) Don't  worry about it, I got it: Another  dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has  told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This  will later result in a man asking 'What's wrong?' For the woman's  response refer to # 3.

And men?

If they say, "I'm on my way" they haven't even left yet.

If you had to ask, they are probably already late, but prepare yourself to hear,

"There was a long line." or?

"The traffic is outrageous."

And without fail, if my husband forgets to pick up the milk, or the eggs, he'll never admit that he forgot.

He'll say, "they were out of 'em."

OR even try to convince me that I didn't mention it at all.

I fixed that, though. I started turning off supper in mid-prep, and would find a ride to the store myself (I still don't drive) and then I came home with about five hundred bags of goodies, and of course, I smiled sweetly and said,

"But it was all on sale." (Not a lie. It WAS all for sale. I never said it was discounted.)



Happy Holidays.

That one not exactly a new addition to my vocabulary--I've heard it many times, but only recently have I come to understand the wisdom and wonderful results of utilizing it.



Delayed gratification can actually enhance ...um, things.
