Called a friend out of frustration with life's apparent habit of screwing with my plans, especially of late; while I appreciate the keeping-me-on-my-toes and continuous-reminder-that-it-will-ultimately-work-out factors, it can get rather tiring. He called me out on my mixing of metaphors, though. A bit snarky/facetious, but an excellent point, when you think about it.
"Argh. Life seems to enjoy throwing me curve balls lately, just to see how well I can dodge them all."
"...Um, just for the record, you're not supposed to dodge them - you're supposed to hit 'em out of the park."
