Today I wrote the words “broken record.” I was referring to an ongoing prayer request, one of those you repeat over and over and wonder if there will ever be an answer. It was a broken record prayer request.
Ack! Can we say DATED???
I can’t use “broken record.”
When I do, my kids laugh and ask about what life was like in the ancient-of-days Eighties when we put records on record players and didn’t (gasp!) have cell phones or personal computers in every home. The days of yore.
So what do I use now?
- My prayer request is like a corrupted CD?
- My prayer request is like a marred MP3?
- My prayer request is like a skipping music file?
Please-oh-please help! None of these roll off the tongue, do they? Share your pithy, twenty-first century thoughts in the comments below.
