I thought this would be an interesting topic. Remembering the cliches that we grew up hearing and how we may or may not have carried them on through our adult lives. I'll start... I have always been an earlier riser. I remember when I first heard 'The early bird catches the worm.' I never understood how my getting up earlier would help me catch a worm that I didn't even like back then but somehow that saying fit me pretty well and it has been one of my favorite cliches.
