It's almost 11 PM and I just realized that I haven't posted anything today!
Not wanting to miss on this 30 Day Writing Challenge, I figured to put out a quick post.

Without straining my pea sized brain at this late hour, I pose this question:

What is your word or phrase of choice when faced with this kind situation?

I have been saying, "Sacrebleu!" for a number of years. I think I first heard it expressed in the Disney movie The Beauty and the Beast. I don't remember if it was the clock or the candlestick holder that used it, but I'm thinking the clock.

Plus one of my co-workers started using it and I would use it to mimic him. Eventually, it became my own and others picked it up from me.

I used to use "Holy socks!" which is really a word play on holey socks. I still do on occasion, but mostly it's "Sacrebleu!"

What is your word or phrase of choice? (I know I'm taking a huge risk here. Be nice.)
