I sometimes say unusual things or put words together in sentences in ways that I've never heard before. And for years, every time I've done this, I've wondered: Has anyone else in the history of speech ever said that before?
It's something that's always fascinated me for some reason, but unfortunately it's a question that I'll never be able to answer.
Has anyone else ever thought about that? Just wondering.

Try it with commas and emphasis on different words, pretty entertaining in the right crowd.

The source, I figure, is the mix of theatre and music influences that exposed you to different ways of saying things.

Have you checked out Of Montreal - The Sunlandic Twins: entertaining for the down times...
