@er1n I say that all the time and I had no idea it was Polish!

@er1n
I did not know that was a polish expression!

@er1n i mutter this to myself at times, 'cuz my mom works with some polish devs and they use this expression all the time

@KitRedgrave @er1n wait this is polish lol i knew the expression but not where it came from

i'll mutter to myself “not my DAMN circus” all the friggen time

@er1n

One of my favorite expressions. Sadly, it was ruined for me by one day realizing it was my circus...

@er1n Yeah it's cute. Until you're a parent. Then you realise this IS your circus and those ARE your monkeys...

@er1n since i learned that one a few years ago i use it all the time and can confirm it remains a GOOD expression.
