Britney Pieta
Here is an exercise on creating your own unique clichés based on real phrases we use every day. So if you are tired of hearing the same old statements why not make your own and amuse your friends? Dare to be silly and start a new trend! If you know of a different cliche that you like better, go ahead and create your own beyond these examples. ;)
