One-Liner Wednesday – Funny or Terrible?


I’m almost afraid to post this. I was at my Deaf son’s school, waiting outside with another mom (the doors were locked) for our kids to get out of basketball practice. We waited, and waited, until the time passed that practice should have been out. The doors are made of glass, so I walked over to see if they were still in the gym. They were. I was going to knock, but of course they couldn’t hear me. They’re Deaf. So I went back to the other mom to let her know what had happened, and the stupidest line I could have ever come up with came out of my mouth.

I see Deaf people.

IT WAS TRUE! Don’t shoot me.

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!

  18. I LOVE it! Thanks for the laugh. I needed it today.


  19. I burst out laughing when I read that. 😆. I could almost picture your facial expression as the words exited your mouth. Christina was deaf (95% in one ear, 80% in the other.). I assure you if she were here I’d share your story and she would laugh too.

  35. This is hilarious! I confess, I use that epic line from The Sixth Sense ALL THE TIME. Like you, I just change the adjective 🤣🤣🤣. I promised myself I’d have something for #1linerWeds today. I’d better get moving.

  37. Funny AND terrible! And terribly funny! 😀 My one-line is also terrible and funny, courtesy of #4 Daughter:


  38. Was wondering where you’d disappeared to!
    That is funny !


  39. I think that’s very cool, actually.
    I don’t talk much. I like writing – even if not very well.
    So I would like, one day, to be able to say, “deaf people hear me.”
