We’ve got a new catch phrase going on in our house, and I’m trying to get it out there into the general masses.
I can’t quite remember how it started, but I think one night after dinner my husband grabbed a tiny box of Nerds, started shaking it, and yelled, “I’m shaking my Nerds!!!”
Since then, it’s become our go-to phrase. For example:
Me: The bus is going to be here any minute. Can you go get your coat on?
My kid: I can’t. I’M SHAKING MY NERDS!!! (two boxes of Nerds, one in each hand, being shaken while doing weird convulsions)
Now don’t worry, you don’t need a box of Nerds in your hand to say the catch phrase. Just say it whenever you don’t want to do something. Another context:
Your boss: I really need those reports on my desk by the end of the day.
You: I really wish I could, but it’s just not going to happen because I’M SHAKING MY NERDS!!!!
Ok, people, let’s get it out there. I want to see this all over Facebook and Twitter.
