Behind the scenes at Rainy Day, this blog battles constantly with those clichés that enfeeble writing wherever English is wrote. Our Top 20:

  • “Going with the flow”
  • “Rome wasn’t built in a day”
  • “No man is an island”
  • “A word to the wise”
  • “Every dog has his day”
  • “Thinking outside the box”
  • “That dog won’t hunt”
  • “The ball is in your court”
  • “Pushing the envelope”
  • “A feather in his cap”
  • “Like pulling teeth”
  • “Avoid like the plague”
  • “Getting cold feet”
  • “Dressed to kill”
  • “Long story short”
  • “Playing hardball”
  • “It’s not all peaches and cream”
  • “Selling like hotcakes”
  • “What goes around comes around”
  • “Anything worth doing is worth doing well”
