at the end of the day
I would like to ban the phrase
“at the end of the day” because
at the end of the day, when people say
“at the end of the day”
it’s generally not the end of the day
that they are talking about,
even when the phrase is used
at the end of the day.

at the end of the day I am tired,
and it’s the end of the day now.
Goodnight.
Sleep tight.

        1. I was literally on my way there, but I literally couldn’t get away from the laptop. I got to hers about an our after I had intended.
          I’m going to literally stop using the word literally and literally send it to room 101 before you get so irritated with me that you find out where I live and strangle me.

          1. Haha! I have no problem with literally, if the person saying it actually means literally. But when they say ‘I would literally die of embarrassment if someone saw me naked,’ then that’s just nonsense – and highly improbable 🙂
