One-Liner Wednesday – Mercury?


I don’t know which planets are aligned or what’s in retrograde, but yesterday my coffee maker broke and I came home to find my laptop wanted me to install an operating system: if you don’t hear from me for a while, you’ll likely find me wandering the streets, Internetless and decaffeinated, looking for a fix.

Here’s some mushrooms I found. …no, I didn’t smoke 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!

  9. okay, so ” if you don’t hear from me for a while, you’ll likely find me wandering the streets, Internetless and decaffeinated, looking for a fix.” – that made me laugh. (or if we find you twitching your head toward your lifting shoulder – ignore… nothing wrong me)


  10. No coffee and computer! This is an emergency.

  25. Hahahahaaa …. sorry for being heartless but your post got me out of a deep depression and made me laugh out loud. I can offer a mug of coffee as apology 🙂

  27. I don’t see a pretty picture resulting from this. I hope you have a backup mobile device and a few coffee bags stashed away somewhere. Good luck.

  29. I have this vision of a woman in an internet coffee shop, begging for mercy, free coffee and the use of someone’s laptop. Hope it doesn’t come down to that.
