106|365 Illuminate (4/20/11)

Last night on Dancing With The Stars I heard the phrase ‘I’m just saying’ repeated so many times that it irritated me.  Out of curiosity I wanted to ‘shed a little light’ on the subject so I searched for its origin and meaning as well as opinions of its overuse.

In case you need this, an explanation in the Urban Dictionary says it is “A phrase used to signify that a previous comment one made was not intended to cause offense or annoyance, but was simply a statement of a personal opinion or an observation that the stater doesn’t care enough to fight over.”

I understand what the phrase means and I don’t care for the flippant and excessive use.
