"Pole vaulting over mouse turds"
This phrase has great use when people ask you, "What you are doing?" and you would like to abruptly end the conversation. Also useful when the little things start to freak you the F$@k out and you need to divert attention from puffy cheeks and the fistful of your own hair poking out between your fingers.
It is a fantastic phrase that was given to me by my dad, who also defines oddities which occur from complex problems as the "Cosmic Crapshoot."
