Water words, Using

Always make sure everyone knows how very busy you are. Repetition is key. I'm busy. Oh, so busy. One way to really drive home the point is by using water words to describe how busy you are:
  • I'm swamped
  • I'm drowning
  • I'm barely able to keep my head above water
  • I'm barely able to tread water
  • I'm flooded
  • I'm in over my head
  • I'm sinking
I'd list more examples, but I'm too bogged down to spend any more time on this post.

I'm up to my arse in alligators.
It shows not only that you are swamped, but also that you are being attacked unfairly.

It's not really a water reference, but I lke it anyhow -- "I'm touching cotton here!"

Being a swim coach, as well as a librarian, I sadly use these expressions all the time. How shameful to be called on it!

"I'm choking on bong water" is good because it has a water and a drug reference.
