Does anyone else ever get tired of hearing this quote from every parent you meet? I'm sure I've heard it ten times this week already.
"There's never a dull moment in this family!"
That's so boring! Let's recreate it with some choice synonyms.
"There's never a bromidic, colorless, commonplace, interminable, stodgy, or well-worn moment in this family!"
Now doesn't that grab your attention? Why reuse a dull line to describe the opposite of dullness? I'm sure Cyrano de Bergerac would never have done so.
