November 3. And it’s Cliche Day. Cliches are overused common expressions, that some argue often lose their original intended message. Some people even call them “trite.” Oftentimes we use them and don’t even think about it. And many cliches are idioms-which have hidden meanings. They are not meant to be taken literally- but sure can be confusing for people who don’t know the language. For example when you say someone has a chip on his shoulder, you’re not really talking about chips.
Hope they gave you a chuckle! I think cliches are the best thing since sliced bread! Sorry- I couldn’t resist.
