You might hate me after today, but I'm hoping against hope that you'll have fun with this Small Thing. If you don't, just blame it all on Zoanna, the wordsmith over at A Penchant for Pens. She started it when she invited us to a virtual costume party back on October 31 and said we had to come as a cliche.
Well, a challenge like that is like chum to a shark for me. I was all over that in a heartbeat. I racked my brain and could only come up with a couple that I felt suited me.
It drove me bananas for a whole day.
And THREE WEEKS LATER, I'm still collecting cliches and "trying them on." Yeah, I'm one card short of a full deck. Not being the sharpest knife in the drawer makes it seem like I'll never get this monkey off my back.
Today's Small Thing is to do anything you want that is inspired by a cliche! You can make a task out of it (if you feel you have to keep your shoulder to the wheel), or if you want to just tie one on, you can have a party with it. Do as much or as little as you want! Have fun and don't be afraid to take it to the limit.
Here's a HUGE list of cliches to help you out. (I laughed through most of it). Don't start going postal on me, because believe me, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. This is one of those Small Things you'll thank me for later.
Note to self: This would make an excellent subject for Company Girl Coffee tomorrow.....
