Stink it, I’ve created another one.
Well, I use these phrases that a friend once dubbed “Ryanneisms.” They are phrases that nobody else seems to use and earn me quite a few odd looks when I say them in everyday conversations. But I’m learning to just roll with it.
“Stink it” is one of these phrases, by the way. It means essentially “darn it” or “snap.”
I won’t delve into the rest of them for fear of being dismayed at my own weirdness. The main point of this random post is to share a new Ryanneism term that I quite like: “brain snacks.” These are basically the same as “food for thought” but, come on, “brain snack” has a much more quippy vibe to it!
Brain snack (noun): a question or statement based on an observation that leads to mental stimulation for at least a brief period of time.
Example: “Ryanne’s reading notes are mostly comprised of a long series of brain snacks.”
Also note that the nutritional value of brain snacks is not definite; some might provide an entire day’s worth of mental munching, but some only 10%.
