If you know anything about me, you know I have quite a habit of using the old adage “…kittens in a basket…”
But did you know that the phrase has nearly 45 uses?! …I’m sorry, it’s closer to 30. But, shit! That’s still a ton!
Here are a few scenarios to get you started:
- Your co-worker starts complaining (again) about his stressful weekend? Just give him the ol’ “Hey, buddy. We’ve all got our kittens in a basket. Don’t think you’re the only one.”
- Late for a dinner appointment? Try “…traffic, rain…it was like kittens in a basket out there.”
- A friend needs help with his computer? “Dude, it’s a 1-2-3 process. Kittens…in a…basket. Done.”
- Grandfather reaches for your hand as he lay in his hospital bed? “Pep-pep, life is but a kitten…several, in fact. And you? You are but the basket. I love you. Now get some rest. Good night.”
