"Break a Leg" has Gotten Old

Posted by bigceebee on November 16, 2013 at 11:45 AM

We've all heard the idiom, "break a leg" as a good luck wish. In fact, it's been used so much it's become cliché. I think it's time we coined some new "good luck" expressions, if only for the sake of originality.

For example, "dislocate a shoulder", "rupture your spleen" and "crack your skull" have never been used. Someone you know is going for a job interview? Tell that person, "Get hit by a bus, kiddo." or "Snap your spine, buddy." I'm sure stage performers, who have heard the old adage enough to make them ill, would enjoy a refreshing, "Hope a spotlight falls and crushes you to death." People could wish a massive coronary thrombosis to those athletes they admire and any race car driver would love to hear, "Hit the wall hard."


With the multitude of bones and organs in the human body, not to mention countless diseases, infections and viruses out there, the possibilities are almost endless.


And so, my friends, whatever your dreams, goals, aspirations and endeavors, "May you get hacked to pieces with a rusty machete." :)

I write blog posts for fun. When I'm serious, I write crime thrillers.   Amazon U.K.
