"It is what it is ..."

It is what it is.

A couple of years ago, "it is what it is" was all the rage. I didn't like the phrase the first time I heard it. I didn't like it even more when everyone would say it as an "out." It was cool like "yadda, yadda, yadda," it was just plain annoying.

We're down to hearing the phrase only once or twice a week now. And I think that's a good thing.

Now, it's more matter of face, almost not meaning to mimic the inane.

But, when someone says, "it is what it is," there's a little part of me that cringes.

And that's all I have to say today.
