Hashtag of the Day: #InnocentPhrasesThatScareMe

I never really questioned these phrases until now. And now they all sound really weird.




WHAT DOES THAT MEAN??? I mean, yeah we all know it as “Keep your eyes focused” or “Look out for anything specific/suspicious”. But “Keep your eyes PEELED”??? Why would you peel an eye????? That sounds disgusting and, quite frankly, not very productive.    




I don’t know! I don’t think that far ahead. I’m the type of person that just takes everything one day at a time. I don’t even know what I’m going to have for breakfast tomorrow. That doesn’t exactly sound like someone who has a “Five Year Plan”




I know this is like, the #1 thing to do for an ice breaker, but the only thing this phrase breaks is my blood pressure. This is the most panic inducing phrase I can think of, right next to “You ARE the father”. And you can never think of something interesting! It’s like when someone says “Don’t think of a purple elephant.” The first thing your brain does is picture a purple elephant. The opposite is true when someone says “Think of something interesting about yourself.” Everything you’ve ever thought was interesting about you just packs up and leaves your brain, leaving you in a panic. And then when it gets to be your turn all you can think of is “I have a cat…?” Smooth, Chynna. Real, smooth. That is SO interesting.




Okay, I know this means “There’s more ways than one to do this thing”….BUT WHERE THE HECK DID THIS PHRASE COME FROM??? When was skinning a cat so common that A.) There were multiple ways of doing it, and B.) It wasn’t seen as super creepy, weird, and down right wrong. WHO ORIGINATED THIS PHRASE???



“Yeah, I’ll take “#1 Phrase That Will Immediately Get You Killed In a Horror Movie” for $500, Alex”



I NEVER say this because I have the WORST luck. If I’m around anyone who says this I immediately go home. Nothing good can happen after a phrase like that.




Are there any “Innocent Phrases” that scare you?
