Oft Repeated Phrases


At the heart of much speculative fiction (and fiction in general) is a question. What if? On Tuesdays I like to throw one out there and see what you make of it. Do with it as you please. If a for-instance is not specified, feel free to interpret that instance as you wish. And if you find this becomes a novel-length answer, I'd appreciate a thank you in the acknowledgements. 😉

OK, so, the other day I noticed how often I preface a story with these words: "a blogger I follow". And it got me thinking...

What if your life was made into a drinking game? What phrase(s) would trigger a drink?

  1. Can just one word count? If so it would be "cool". A lot of drinks would be taken though......

  4. Since I don't want to drink, a phrase hardly used.

    1. Now that I've pointed it out, you'll catch yourself saying something over and over and over again.

  6. "Cancer." It's not really a phrase, but I it is uttered so often that at least I could get a good buzz every day.

    1. Probably. I'm so sorry that that's true for you. (I was hoping for a much more fun phrase ;)

  7. “Sugar, beehive” when I am trying not to swear otherwise, pick a swear word except the one that ends in Tuesday...I despise that word.

    1. You say "book" a lot? In this corner of the blogosphere? You don't say?
