Wednesday, September 27th, 10:00am
Deborah, Tilden and Prescott

 

Tilden: Mommy?

Deborah: Yes. sweetie?

Tilden: Why don’t you just feed Prescott?

Deborah: I’ll wait ’til we get home.

Tilden: But he’s hungry now.

Deborah: I can’t feed him now.

Tilden: Why not?

Deborah: Because we’re in a public place.

Tilden: So?

Deborah: So, people don’t want to see me feed your brother.

Tilden: But you said it’s natural.

Deborah: That’s right.

Tilden: So what’s wrong with it?

Deborah: I don’t know, sweetie.

Five minutes goes by with Prescott crying.

Tilden: Mommy?

Deborah: Yes, Tilden?

Tilden: Prescott is really hungry, and he’s getting on my nerve.

Deborah: We’re almost home.

Tilden: Just whip it out and feed him.

Deborah: TILDEN!

Tilden: That’s what Daddy says!

Deborah: That’s when we’re at home.

Tilden: Can’t I even say it in public?

One-Liner Wednesday – Works for Them!

You might remember my post from a few weeks ago when I asked if anyone knew what this might be:

Turns out it was a bag of water with a coin inside for discouraging bugs to come in the door.

So I decided to try it in my kitchen full of fruit flies:

They love it!

Turns out it works for them. 🙄

If you would like to participate in this prompt, 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 pingback, 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 pingback 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!
