Early Signs of Brain Damage

I think we can all agree that the entire nation is currently nuts. Seriously, we had Hillary Clinton running against Donald Trump for president, meaning those two deeply flawed candidates were the best we've got! Need I say more? Since Trump sealed the deal, I've been looking closely for clear signs of brain damage in the hope that early detection may help me dodge it.

One thing for sure is saying "At the end of the day" any time of the day, even at the start of the day and smack-dab in the middle of the day and yes, sometimes even at the actual end of the day when you don't mean anything about the time. When will this nonsense, and I do mean non-sense, stop? Please, if you can still read, if your brain has not turned into mush from all the binge-watching and binge-eating and binge-sitting-around, be it at home or at the office, I am begging you: Don't say it anymore. It is meaningless unless it's like, "They swore he would be there between 10 and 2 but the plumber finally showed up at the end of the day."

For further protection, immediately stop saying, "It is what it is," the utterance of which is an indication of stage-4 brain damage, so if you find yourself saying that you should get yourself checked right away. Ditto "This point in time," possibly the scariest of all. (FYI: If you need to say "this point in time," just say "now.")
