"Signature Phrases"

We all have those phrases (or even just words) that we find ourselves saying over and over again.

A couple of mine are:

"You can't plan creativity."
"No doubt."

So...what are "your" phrases or words?

And, for those of you who know me, what are some others of mine?

Shane, this is only to my husband:
"I love you, I love you, I love you, and I really mean it"

Vanessa said...

I find myself saying the word "Nice" a lot. It's my word to use when I really don't know what else to say, which happens quite a lot with me. *lol*

Shane Coffman said...

Hee, hee, Vanessa. In my mind I can see your head nodding as you say it, too...

Brenda said...

My find myself saying "SHUT UP" or "GET OUT" when I really want to know more!

TREY MORGAN said...

"Dude" Balaam.

I still say dadgumit a lot.

Shaner used to say "Sweet!" a lot. Still true?

I was just talking with Don McLaughlin who also says "Sweet!" at least 20 times a day. But his signature phrase from the pulpit is, "Shake your head yes, no, or maybe and it'll go faster."

Brenda said...

Yes Wes! Shane still says it a lot!!

Brenda said...

Shane says:

"Gracious"

A phrase I hear myself say everyday:

"My first answer was NO, so what do you think my last answer will be?"
I think I say that way too many times! ;o)

Vanessa said...

haha! Shane, you know me too well. What can I say, I'm just not much of a conversationalist. (Is that really a word??)

Cornelius Crew said...

"fantastic" and "impressive" are words I catch myself using over and over with my kids... sometimes when I didn't hear a word they said, but trying to appear attentive(but this rarely ever happens! ha ha)

Brenda said...

ha!!!

ABBBBSOLUTELY!!!!

I say that so much that my husband gets angry! He can't stand it. Says I say it all the time. Don't believe him! ;o)

Shane Coffman said...

I'll admit to "sweet" and "gracious".

And learned "dadgumit" from Wes during our years of sharing an apartment.

Nice. ; )

your sis said...

Seriously!? I have found myself saying that a lot lately for several different meanings. Mostly when looking at the boys when they have blatantly done something they know is against the rules and I'll just look at them as in "Seriously, you think I didn't notice that?" All I have to say is "Seriously" and they say "Sorry, Mom"

Theresa said...

lessee.... I have about a billion.

One of which is "lessee" :)

I say "frankly" all the freakin' time.

I say "2.5 seconds".

I say, "srsly" and yes... I leave out the vowels.

And "schweet!" That's one of my faves.

So yeah....

using signature phrases since 1979,

Mike Morton said...

"You've GOT to be kidding me!"

"Dog-gone-it"

& "That's too cool."

Mike Morton said...

"Jiminy Christmas!"
