One-Liner Wednesday – A Hostage Situation


Does everyone have that one Facebook friend who, every time she has her picture taken with another person, they have look on their face like she’s taking them hostage? Or am I the only one with scary friends?


Anyone who would like to participate, 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.

NOTE: Pingbacks only work from WordPress sites. If you’re self-hosted or are participating from another host, like Blogger, please leave a link to your post in the comments below.

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. Try to make it either funny or inspirational.

3. Use our unique tag #1linerWeds.

4. Add our very cool badge to your post for extra exposure!

5. Have fun!

  6. Take a photo of a young child in a fast food joint and their mom and they usually smile; take a photo of a teen in the same situation and they totally look like a hostage! 😉

  18. Nope Linda, you’re not the only one. I have a friend like that too. She thinks she is pretty and so she must appear in every single picture I take and in other people’s too. Distance has separated us right now, you just made me remember.


  19. Hostages were the norm in old B&W photos. You can tell because they never smiled.

  24. My ex sometimes looked scary in photos. Otherwise, most of my friends look pretty happy…or a little crazy (not the scary crazy).


  25. I think I’ve seen pictures of your friends on Twitter. I keep a low profile on FB.
