    told me he had a new oxymoron to tell me. I being the brave mother I am asked, "What." He says, "Todays lunch at school was awful so my friends and I decided, "Cafeteria Food" should be an oxymoron."

    I laughed till I had tears in my eyes. If I remember my school lunches, I think he may have something.

    So here is my contribution, "Cafeteria Food"

    Come everyone join in lets have some fun with this one.

    I love it. Those are both really good.

    How about one most of us can relate to and actually may say quite often, ah...but think about it! For most of us this would be an oxymoron:

    "Good Morning"

    Don't ya think? on the day?

    Take care and Kitten Hugs,

    doctors don't like me because I'm an impatient patient.

    I just work hard at not letting reality spoil my dreams however, as I believe in alternative universes...

    all the best,

    one size fits all (Yeah right!)
    living dead (night of)
    common sense (not in my house!)
    free investment (no such thing)

    Now maybe some we can all relate too:

    clean room (no such thing with FM and 3 teenage boys)

    quick supper (That would be Hamburger Helper, right?)

    wide awake (definitely not if you count my eyelids going closed all the time)

    family time (does watching 12hrs of CSI count?)

    Not just too sure how oxymoron they are, but they sure seem like it to me!

    Everyone has been great! I wanted all of you to know how appreciative I am of all the great oxymorons. They are definitely putting a smile on my face.

    Especially the ones related to CFS/FM. Anybody else want to contribute?

    Come on in the waters fine.

    I will be on for a bit I am going to go do a favorite oxymoron of mine: I am going to go get some "restful sleep"

    Take care & Kitten Hugs,

    how about --

    slumber party

    terrific headache

    restfull sleep

    acute dullness

    health-care system

    A little pain never hurt anyone

    Starting to Stop - as when one has a headache & says "It's starting to stop."

    I paid too much for that medicine, but its worth it.

    The best cure for insomnia is to get a lot of sleep. -W.C. Fields

    and others:

    accurate weather forecast

    resident alien

    stop action

    adult children

    BTW, what does one do with a tree after he cuts it down?
    He cuts it up of course. And to have fun, you can cut up...

    An Authentic Reproduction.

    Did someone list this? Bittersweet

    These are alot of fun! I have a funny story about a woman who worked for me many many years ago. Her name was Dawn West and one of the big wigs told her she was an oxymoron! She thought he called her a moron. We had to explain it to here...

    And I apologize if Dawn West is on this board - no offense meant.

    Really I mean that. I have been so impressed with all the ones we have all come up with.

    Don't you just love the ones we can all really relate to in life somehow!

    Oxymorons, there everywhere!

    No seriously I am so glad I told my little story and so many had more to go with it.

    Thank you everyone and take care,
