Another day, another dollar

At the end of every workday, I turn to the colleague that sits next to me and say:

Another day. Another dollar.


And then I laugh out loud at my own joke.

She smiles. Or ignores me. She has grown tired of this joke by now.

The moral of this story is that I need more and better idioms to weave into my language. I need to be able to throw "It's like inviting a dog into a meat truck" or "Even a broken clock is right twice a day" into a casual conversation with my boss.

And that is what I am focusing all my attention on right now. That, and leftover Thai food.


  1. Aussie favorites (or "favourites"):
    -That doesn't give me enough time to s$&@ in a sock (when given a last minute project)
    -Let's make sure we're kicking toward the same goal (when doing group work)
    -I'm gonna hand pass that one to you (complete with Aussie rules footy gesture. Used for dumping work on someone else)

  2. You should remember the project of idioms we did in Juicy's class...and then got to draw them out. That was a fun day...
