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

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


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.
