What about “sprayover”
“My neck has a sprayover and the body has overspray!”
One of my favorite sentiments. Saw that on a bumper sticker around ‘90-‘91. Wrote it down and could hardly wail to get to a dictionary.
Perhaps you failed to notice how firmly and how far my tongue was in my cheek when I wrote my comment.
I think you may have oversprayed here.
I completely enjoyed your post and the tongue in cheek you employed was very artful, as well.
I was only attempting to follow in your footsteps and apparently failed in my attempt. Sorry.
Shucks, I was hoping you were gonna give me more of a hard time than that.
I deserve it. You’re entitled to give it right back at me, and your post was well done as well. No fail.
Don’t let farts like me discourage you . . .
With discussions of aerosols as of late, "overspray" has taken on a whole new meaning in life.
Probably someone trying to make what they were doing sound more important than it was.
"I'll overspray it when I'm done."
how much do you spend on that as it is?
I'm way too old for anyone to discourage me...besides, no one can do a better job at poking away at my pretensions than my own bad self. I do enjoy the humor around here and have learned quite a bit in the process, so I try to stay on an even keel while I can.
hey, what were we talking about in the first place? Overspray? What about underspray? Doesn't it deserve equal time? I don't recall a single person mentioning underspray!
Underspray! There I said it!
My underspray got so bad, I have to take medication now.
A buck was once slang for a dollar.
So I was asked how much it would cost to repair an oil leak. I replied “about a buck”
The response was that we don’t want to spend that much on it. I said “What ! A lousy dollar for an O ring?” They said “Oh we thought you meant a hundred dollars”
If I meant a hundred dollars I would have said a hundred dollars. Now stay off my lawn
I've only heard of bicycle trails, not trials.
I still flinch if I even hear the word, “overspray”.
I grew up in my Dad’s auto body shop.
The word “overspray”, to me, meant, “I’m going to get yelled at!”
Now they make low pressure turbine sprayers. I want one.
Like Randy Marsh?
I'm only recently coming to accept this, with all the stupid new things like "on fleek", "hashtag", "he's basic", or being "salty". I work at a high school and it's like they're all speaking a different language.
But then I remember old people thinking we were idiots when we were that age with being "groovy", saying "way to be", or "I'm gonna cut you low". Same crap, different decade.
My late brother’s stock response, for most anything, was “a buck three eighty.”
It has about as much meaning as it sounds.
My Grandfather (in my avatar) said it was "a buck three sixty". Maybe pre-inflation?
And here I always thought it was just a stupid thing my brother used to say, something he made up, but apparently it is a more general thing: https://www.answerbag.com/q_view/582612
But it seems it is most often a buck three eighty.
Google is your (and my) friend.
From that page:
Question: What is this all about? The phrase " A buck three eighty" e.g. How much does that cost? A buck three eighty
Noodles: three dollars and eighty cents
Porsche: No, a buck three eighty is NOT three dollars and eighty cents. It's a humorous, non-sensical amount. A buck is a dollar. A buck eighty is a dollar and eighty cents. Three eighty is three dollars and eighty cents. A buck three eighty is an intentional splice error which isn't a particular amount but a jumbling of different, mutually exclusive amounts. It's supposed to be a joke. It's often used to mean a trivial amount, like: "here's my buck three eighty's worth..." instead of "... two cents worth...", or "I guess I could flip burgers for a buck three eighty an hour", or maybe "I really earned my buck three eighty today" meaning "I worked eally hard and definitely earned my measly, insufficient paycheck". Unfortunately, I have no idea what the origin of the expression is.
In any case, I still use it to honor my brother, along with a lot of other silly things he used to say.
And whenever you lift something large with another person, you must coordinate your timing with the phrase “Lift . . . and seperate.”
