One-Liner Wednesday – Because seriously, no one wants to be around me



You know you’ve finally made it to the party of life when you get insulted by a fortune cookie. Thanks, Confucius.



Anyone who would like to try it out, feel free to use the “One-Liner Wednesday” title in your post, and if you do, you can ping back here to help your blog get more exposure. To execute a ping back, just copy the URL in the address bar on this post and paste it somewhere in the body of your post. Your link will show up in the comments below. Please ensure that the One-Liner Wednesday you’re pinging back to is this week’s! Otherwise, no one will likely see it but me.

As with Stream of Consciousness Saturday (SoCS), if you see a ping back from someone else in my comment section, click and have a read. It’s bound to be short and sweet.

Unlike SoCS, this is not a prompt so there’s no need to stick to the same “theme.”

The rules that I’ve made for myself (but don’t always follow) for “One-Liner Wednesday” are:

1. Make it one sentence.

2. Make it either funny or inspirational.

3. Use our unique tag #1linerWeds!

4. Have fun!

  3. I don’t see it as an insult. If you don’t like yourself you won’t be friendly to others. It seems to be a logical reminder that all you can do is make yourself the best friend you would want. Then life falls into place.

  5. That is definitely quite the fortune cookie, haha. I have never been insulted, but a fortune cookie did predict my sexual orientation! (‘You will find a wonderful wife.’… well, gee, fortune cookie. You were right. O.o)

  22. I once got a fortune cookie note that said, “Be happy you can pay the bill.” That was the highlight of my sad day. How did they know?
