Motivational posters, colloquial sayings and random thoughts

17 07 2008

We’ve all seen those chessy motivational posters with a picture and then a little saying that is supposed to be uplifting.  Every boss has one in their office, every teacher has one in the classroom.  Weeellllll, these are a little different but I like them.

Here are some colloquial sayings that I learned while growing up in the south.  They might not be the most eloquent but they get the job done and then some!

He’d complain if you hung him with a new rope.

Just do all you can and let the rough end drag.

That boy is about as sharp as a cue ball.

I’m bowed up like a Halloween cat.

He’s ridin a gravy train with biscuit wheels.

As easy as herdin chickens.

You got to be 10% smarter than the equipment you’re running.

She has two speeds:slow and stop.

I felt like a monkey doing a math problem.

Nervous as a long tailed cat in a room full of rockers.

Random thought:

If you hold a door open for a person as your walking into a place of business, isn’t the polite thing to do to allow the person that held the door to get in front of you in line? (Like at Starbucks in the morning?)  Welcome to California!!

If you haven’t read or heard the story of Josh Hamilton, who is leading MLB in RBI’s at the All Star break, google him.  It is an incredible story of wasted years and redemption.

1 in 2 men will develop some form of cancer.  1 in 3 women will do the same.  Donate some money to cancer research.  Even if it’s only $5 we need every dollar that we can possible get.  Go to youtube and search for Jim Valvano’s speech at the 1993 ESPY awards.  It is truly an awesome speech. 

Do something nice for someone this week.  You’ll feel better about yourself and if you don’t someone will feel better about you!
