What's Your Signature Saying?

Are you known for anything you say often?

Do your family or friends ever give you that knowing glance and say it before you do in that "gottcha" kind of way?

One of my aunts, who lives in Utah, says, "Oh my heck."

My granddad had a very...shall we say, colorful expression he used frequently.

Big Shooter says, "Life is good" quite frequently.

And apparently, I say, "Oh my word" in between every sentence.

In fact, I've been told I have so many different ways of saying this phrase that I have one for every kind of situation.

  • In response to Girl Child telling me she's finished yet another chapter book in a single evening: (said with the Momma Wow voice), " Oh my worrrd!"

  • After Boy Child tells me, in agonizingly great detail, the many life-sustaining battles on a video game: (said with as much fake momma wow as I can muster), "Oh...my word."

  • Tasting some divine culinary treat: (said slowly with a throaty voice), "Oh...my....worrrrd...".

  • After Saucy Sashi gives me some unbelievable news: (each word is said separately and slowly with my eyebrows up as far as they can go), "Oh. My. Word. "
  • Screeching at the top of my lungs when seeing a scary jumping bug, "Ohmyword! Ohmyword! OhmyWORD!!"
I'm dying to know if y'all have a signature saying of your own? Please share it with us. What is it? Where'd you first hear it? What does it mean to you and how often do you express it?

Love Note to my Big Shooter: I should have said your Signature Saying is, "Zzzzzzzz. snort. Zzzzzzzz."

I say "delicious" and "delightful" a lot.

when we were growing up, my sister started every story with "Oh my gosh its so sad" all run together like it was one word. That one has stuck. I have a tendency to say "I'll gaurantee you"...and then spout off with whatever I firmly believe to be correct

You do say "Oh my word" all the time, but I love it. It's you. As for me, I have a few:

1. What part of get your ass into bed don't you understand?

2. Wish in one hand, shit in the other and see which one fills up first.

3. People in hell want ice water, but they're not getting it.

4. SQUIRREL! (Have u seen the movie Up?)

5. You must have me mistaken for a mother who gives a rats ass what you think.

6. Do you want to walk with a permanent limp like your sister?

7. If I have to come in there.... someone's getting hurt.

That's all I've got off the top of my head. :)

I am gonna ponder this question some more.

I saw your blog title this morning. Tried to click on you... and you wouldn't come up.

So there is a glitch somewhere.
I wish I knew how to stop it... lately blogger keeps me from seeing some of my favorite people.

I tried to ask my daughter if I have signature saying... she is to sleepy to answer. So tomorrow I will ask her again... and Tony too. (work)


ShEiLa said...

ps. Out of the blue today Tony says... hey doesn't your one friend Straight Shooter have a husband that is allergic to stuff? I said I think that's right... but he has had some health issue limitations and kidney cancer... and I hadn't finished my sentence when he said.... gee he has had it rough hasn't he?

I am amazed that my hubby brought you up... WE are gonna all have to meet one of these days.

ShEiLa said...

If I see this one more time...

Internet Explorer cannot open the internet website http://shootinstraight.blogspot.com

I am gonna scream and you may hear it in your neck of the woods. ;)

Little glitches can be frustrating.

So its not blogger... its my browser??? any suggestions????

Apparently, I say "oh my goodness" a lot! I didn't know this until my 2 year old starting saying it BEFORE I had a chance to (but was preparing to).

Link exchange is nothing else however it is only placing
the other person's blog link on your page at suitable place and other person will also do similar for you.

I'm amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that's both educative and
interesting, and without a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. I'm very happy I stumbled across
this in my hunt for something regarding this.

A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment.
I do think that you need to write more about this issue, it
may not be a taboo matter but usually folks don't talk about these issues. To the next! Kind regards!!

Hey there terrific blog! Does running a blog similar to this take a great deal of work?
I have absolutely no understanding of coding however I was hoping to start my own blog in the near future.
Anyhow, should you have any suggestions or tips for new blog owners
please share. I understand this is off subject however I simply needed to ask.
Many thanks!

Heya this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you
have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering
if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest
twitter updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
