Things I Caught Myself Saying This Week

It can be very revealing to audit the little things you say in everyday conversations. Here’s a few things I caught myself saying this week, “I would like to buy a Mac Pro please.” Quite possibly the most expensive sentence of the year. “I don’t drink coffee from paper cups.” A not altogether true outburst […]

It can be very revealing to audit the little things you say in everyday conversations. Here’s a few things I caught myself saying this week,

“I would like to buy a Mac Pro please.”
Quite possibly the most expensive sentence of the year.

“I don’t drink coffee from paper cups.”
A not altogether true outburst in response to being served an espresso in a tiny paper cup (Pacific Coffee are a large hain here in HK who regularly serve inhouse drinks in disposable cups rather than their readily available washable cups and mugs).

“Slow Down!”
My most commonly uttered phrase when in a HK taxi.

“It was working this morning.”
Don’t you love the way credit cards commit random acts of character asassination.

“No, we’ve been coming here for a year and a half.”
In response to the always poorly conceived question – “are you new to this church?”

“Do you have one in black?”
Old habits resurface while clothes shopping.

I’m currently rehearsing my bathtime mantra of…

“the water stays in the bath”

“bath toys are not meant to fly”

“you can take turns sharing ends”

“please don’t drink the bath water”

Fortuantly this is not slowing down my blog reading that much…

“please don’t drink the bath water”

You are one up on me – I seldom manage to squeeze a “please” into that sentence!
