      YOLO makes me want to punch someone in the throat.

       

      Epic would be a good addition.  I'm sure Homer rolls over in his grave every time someone uses it.

      Do you even run?

          There was an article in Sunday's paper about the word jogging be used as a slur or derisive term for those who run slow.  The author opined that anyone who runs faster than a walk is a "runner".  I agree and how we in the field of running should openly accept all runners, even those back of the pack.  Here is a link to the article.

              Agreed.  Epic is getting old.

                "Kick the can down the road"?  Am I living under a rock?  I've never heard that phrase before in my life.

                  I think epic was on the list last year.

                    It deserves to be on the list again.  LOL!

                      That was funny!  Blue, kicking the can is also used to describes someone who procrastinates.

                        I agree with epic.  God, that word is annoying.
