John Y’s Musings from the Middle: As it Were…

jyb_musingsWhen I am trying to explain something and don’t understand it well I will end my explanation with the phrases “as it were” or “if you will.”

I don’t really know what these phrases mean and they add nothing to my explanation but they are smart sounding and may trick the listener into believing I know more than I do about the topic I am explaining.

This morning is off to a slow start. I couldn’t …read a simple note without my cheaters and then waved hello and spoke to someone in line for coffee this morning who I know but can’t remember from where or what his name is.

It feels like it’s going to be one of those days I’ll be using phrases like “as it were” and “if you will” a lot, as it were….if you will.

I need all the help and tricks I can use.
