One-Liner Wednesday – It really sucks


Woke up to a new message

Woke up to a new message on my fridge… I wonder who left it?


It was a rough night of peeing everywhere and bumping into things. (Winston, not me) It took him a few tries to get used to going down the small step through the back door without his cone jamming between the slats, causing him to get stuck. He’s still sucking air occasionally, but he doesn’t seem to be in any discomfort. I sincerely hope this is the end of his troubles. I can’t afford any more. But hey, the good news is it was only $2,200 instead of $2,500! 🙄


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.” However, if you’d like to combine One-Liner Wednesday with Just Jot It January, go right ahead!

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!

  2. Awe. I hope the puppy recovers well. My dog would not adjust to the plastic cone. I went out to the pet store and bought a comfort cushion cone. Cheap too. It made both our lives so much easier during her recovery.


  3. Best wishes to Winston. Get well soon!

  13. Glad to see he’s back home, despite the cone! Poor thing, hope he fully recovers soon 🙂


  14. I don’t know of a pet that doesn’t like cone of shame. Hope poor Winston recovers and is all better soon.


  15. Our german shepherd had to wear one of those for a couple of weeks – you should have seen the way some people glared at us when we were out for a walk! Like we were torturing her on purpose. Hope the pup’s better soon!

  23. Glad to see the dog at least was safely returned by the KGB before being coned.


  24. Oh, no – what happened to Winston? (I must have missed one of your posts! My bad.)


  25. Happy to see Winston is back home! xo
