Dead Horses and Epic Fails

I am going to start enforcing a rule...

If Mark says, "Long story short..." to sum up his thoughts, he owes me a nickel.  

I am trying to save him from the dreaded Cliche King title.  Isn't that nice of me?

I probably shouldn't talk though.  Last night I had a cliche Epic Fail in front of my Harp&Bowl team buddies.

I was trying to articulate the fact that I can't get over Isaiah 61.  It's so good.  Like, SO good.  I think I said something like, "I hate to kick a dead horse, but Isaiah 61 is STILL a big deal for me..."

Yikes.  Isaiah 61 and dead horses should not be in the same sentence. 

Epic, epic, epic fail.

Live and learn, right? (wink, wink)

Hold "Epic fail" a cliche, TOO?  Maybe I am worse at this than Mark is...

Do you have funny cliche stories?  

Does anybody know how to get a little accent mark above my e's in cliche?  You'll just have to imagine that they're there for now.

  1. I love Is. 61 - have borrowed his words many times in prayer over the past 5 or 6 years. My frequent and earnest prayer is for my children to become "mighty oaks of righteousness, plantings of the Lord for the display of HIS splendor".

    On an unrelated note... I went on a Friday Night Lights rampage last summer, watching the entire season in like a month (after the kids were in bed and Joe went running - ugh). If we ever get another dog, it shall be a boy dog. And his name shall be "Tim Riggins".
