So I've been playing some hearty basketball Tuesday nights and I have one particularly noticeable defect as a ballplayer:
It is common to say things like "Good shot!" to complement a player who has made (for instance) a good shot. The nice thing about expressions such as "Good shot!" is they fit nicely in a single breath.
When one of the gentleman made the first shot of a game this evening I said "Auspicious beginning!"
Which did not fit in one breath.
