It’s a lateral move.

Driving home tonight, I realized that I definitely need to find a way to work the phrase “lateral move” into my everyday conversations.

Me: “Well, it is really just more of a lateral move than anything else Sally.”
Sally: “What the hell are you talking about? Look, do you want to see Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights or not?”
Me: “Fine. But like I say, it is a lateral move.”

I feel my life improving already!
