Day Four: Concise

adjective, giving a lot of information clearly and in a few words; brief but comprehensive

It all started with the movie Juno (which isn’t exactly my favorite), but one line has made it’s mark on the history books of great loves lines: “He’s the cheese to my macaroni.”  Short, simple, with a touch of poetic. I call it a coupled catch phrase. Considering all the great “couplings” in today’s world, this word gift should not only be easy, but has the possibility to be very personal.

To get your brain jumpstarted, here’s a few to consider:

  • your the peanut butter to my jelly
  • your the smile to my face
  • your the dance in my step
  • your the ice cream to my apple pie
  • your the horizon to my sky
  • your the milk to my cereal
  • your the bacon to my eggs
  • your the bookmark to my book

Get the picture?  Now it’s your turn. Start with your favorite foods (or any other favorite), for example pizza, then think of the pairing that makes it soooooo good (mozzarella). Fill in the blanks (your the _________ to my ___________). Then you’ve got a personalized word gift for someone you love. Your the mozzarella to my pizza!  If you know me that’s a big compliment:)  It speaks volumes of what you mean to me.

Just because I love ya, my faithful readers out there, I want you to know:   Your the candy to my corn!

Okay, let’s see how original and creative we can get.  Leave your favorite coupled catch phrase here. On Monday, I’ll put the catch phrases to a vote. The two phrases with the most votes will each win a $5 gift card to Be sure to tell your friends on Facebook/Twitter to join in the fun by linking the blog.

    Wow…a contest. I’m feeling the pressure! 🙂
    I guess mine would have to be “You’re the salt to my pretzel.”
