Here is an excerpt
"A creative writing teacher at San Jose State used to say about clichés: "Avoid them like the plague." Then he'd laugh at his own joke. The class laughed along with him, but I always thought clichés got a bum rap. Because, often, they're dead-on. But the aptness of the clichéd saying is overshadowed by the nature of the saying as a cliché. For example, "the elephant in the room" saying. Nothing could more correctly describe the initial moments of my reunion with Rahim Khan."
I really find them annoying lacking in any original thought unless they are used to further an alternate meaning.
