No!! It's one of my favorite phrases. ;)

But...but...but there are so many people out there that need to know about how special of a snowflake they truly are. Isn't it our duty to make sure they know this about themselves. :inlove:

It may be overused, but it's just so wonderfully descriptive. Maybe we should set up parameters for use?

How about tender little snowflake?

Or Sparkle Pants McSpazatron?

I can live with Sparkle Pants

They say there are two kinds of people in this world, the snowflakes and the COB's.

I keep trying out for Team COB but so far I keep getting red shirted. They say I can't get off the bench til I eat my first young..

I HATE BEING A SNOWFLAKE! I HATE IT! I HATE IT SOOOOOOO MUCH!!!!!!! :arghh:

I will not accept that Snowflakes and COBs are the only options. There must be a happy medium in there somewhere.

I'd kind of like to see klone slapping people in the forehead, like a V8 commercial.

Dogen, you're old.

And bald, apparently.

Apparently there has been a resurgence of the "I could have had a V8!" commercials. I remember the one from the '80s. I guess I am old. My apologies, Dogen.

Well, the sad fact is that I'm probably the worst of all worlds, THE HYBRID! :laugh:

As a current student who has a long, long time to reach the level of knowledge and expertise as most nurses on here, I have to say that I hate when that phrase is used to generalize all student nurses/new grads. I know a lot of us act like know-it-all brats, but we're not all that way :(

Actually, snowflakes are very special. Each one is unique. Have you ever seen one under a microscope? I thought not.
