Sometimes you get backed into a corner.
Sometimes you are the reason for being in the corner.
Other times it’s an unforeseen consequence of being shortsighted.
In other words, you were being stupid.
When you find yourself up the creek without a proverbial paddle, or said creek is full of excrement (you figure that one out), the only thing for us to say is, “Oh, boy.”
Sometimes you get lucky.
Extra time on the swings at recess.
A trip to the water park.
An extra $100 dollars surfaces in the bank account.
Or, you turn around after leaving your street, to find actually didn’t forget to unplug the iron. All this excitement deserves an exclamation. An “Oh, boy!” seems more than fitting.
Other times people are left shaking their heads at you thanks to some newfound level of dumb-ass-ery you’ve not only recently discovered but have fully committed yourself to. Yes, a brand new level of stupidity so nonsensically profound those around you are left thinking, “Oh, boy.”
We never really know what’s coming next, do we.
Because of that it seems helpful to have a catch all phrase such as “Oh, boy,” tucked into to our pocket for those occasions when words undoubtedly fail us.
