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.
