  1. In a song – “come what may” I used to think this says “come with me”, but in our nouns as verbs society, a better phrase would be. “because of happen”
  2. In a movie – “We’re not in Kansas Anymore” unless it’s the Wizard of Oz. This usually happens when someone doesn’t recognize their surroundings or is up in a strange place.
  3. At work – “can I ask you a quick question” the question is always quick, but it’s the answer that takes forever. The “quick” question is usually a sign someone is about to dump some work on you and take the credit.
