Straightforwardness rules the universe. Speaking in circles only brings confusion and -- clearly -- never aided anyone trying to concisely capture a crystaline thought.
So if you'd like to add just a sliver of allure and mystique to your brilliant modes of expression, try a sprinkle of Euro-Thought. You know, bizarr-o expressions that appeal precisely because they're not possible to literally translate.
"She slipped in on a banana peel."
"I was working against the windmills."
"We were stuck in the yogurt."
Translations? Oh, use your imagination. It's time you added some rhetorical spice to your already-poignant persona.
