Chrisisms : Back by Popular Demand


Several weeks ago I wrote a post entitled Spinning in our Teacups which highlighted some of my dear husband’s memorable phrases.   Since then I have been keeping track when he makes a memorable one on my phone and the list is growing.   I decided that occasionally I will pass these gems along to my readership because they are just too good to keep to myself.   He, of course, is aware of this and is wanting to ride my non-existant coattails of fame so I am happy to let him come along for the ride.   I will have to censor some of them for my G rated blog but suffice it say—we still have plenty.  So —please—by all means—enjoy and share if you must!

1.”They were like goldfish swimming in a thimble.”

2. Barbacoma—-a BBQ coma —experienced after a huge meal at the local Rib Crib.  It isn’t Carolina BBQ but it is the closest we can get to it out here in the midwest.

3. Tights right.  (Don’t ask any  more questions about that one.)

4. “Gotta dress like the worker bees or else they will sting you and drive you from the hive.”  (This was the response when asked why he was wearing jeans one day.)

5. After a recent trip to China where they had not done what they were supposed to do ahead of his visit:  “Chinese couldn’t organize a Chinese fire drill.”

6. “We are just the pygmies who are trying not to get trampled.”

7.  “Being on key is kind of key.”

So there you have it. The latest installment of Chrisims!  Hope you enjoyed them as much as I did.  And never fear—I am sure there will be more.


  1. LOL

  2. He cracks me up…

    To think that I had to go on your blog to learn about my son-in-laws chrisims!!

  5. lol, thank you for the laugh this morning!! I love them all but I think my favorite is the first one or the pigmy one, I could see using them both. If you want to stop by the blog hop today it is up and running. Hope you are having a great start to the week. 🙂

    • I think he left out the elephant part of the pygmy one—-something about elephants tromping around!!! I will hop on over to see what is shaking on your blog hop!!!Thanks!

  6. I think the goldfish one is my fave, but I am afraid I would use it incorrectly!

  7. These are so damn funny! Gotta love a man who says thinks of goldfish swimming in thimbles! What a hoot————–

  8. This is hilarious!
    Ps. I lovvvve the cause forthis month, so i plan to comment a lot 🙂

  9. Growing up in Communist East-Germany we tend to make a lot of Russian jokes…so his Chinese one would be “Russians couldn’t organize a Russian fire drill!!!” 🙂 Love the goldfish one, too. 🙂

  10. I see another book in your future…

  11. That Chris is too funny. I’ll have to remember barbacoma. I think I’ve been in one of those before. Keep The Chrisisms coming.

    • I know I have had the barbacoma many times….and yes—never fear. He has a lot of them so I keep writing them done. It might help that he is on meds for his back, still….that might be a contributing factor to the wittiness.
