One-Liner Wednesday – A Disco?


So on Sunday I walked into a restaurant and was greeted by the hostess, as you are. She glanced out the window and saw that there was an ambulance, lights flashing, at the seniors home across the street.

“Oh look at that,” she said. “An ambulance. It looks like a disco over there.”

I stared at her, a little flabbergasted, with a remark on the tip of my tongue that went something like, I doubt it does to the person the ambulance is there for. But I said nothing. Because once in a while, we all say something totally stupid.


Hey! Don’t forget the badge contest for One-Liner Wednesday! (Which, by the way, this post is NOT a good example of. In fact it’s a great example of how you can break the rules!) For details on the contest and to get your name (and/or your blog’s address) mentioned numerous times every week, click the link! The contest closes Sunday and voting for the best badge starts Monday. Don’t delay – start designing now!


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!

  1. Instead of a siren, maybe ambulances should have huge speakers blasting music by the Bee Gees, Donna Summer, and KC and the Sunshine Band…

  3. Yes we all say something stupid now and then. Like the guy in the funeral home talking to the widow. “So tell me what happened?” he says. “He was just sitting having coffee and dropped over.” “Oh,thank God it was nothing serious.”

  7. A disco… that’s an interesting comparison. It’s a humbling moment when we hear someone make such an absurd comment, because it’s then that we remember that we’ve made a few ourselves.


  8. The elder generation of my family live in the same senior community. They are all in independent living, but there is on-site assisted living and skilled nursing unit, too. The ambulance is called there frequently. We are very grateful to the emergency workers who patiently help the residents when they need it most.
