One-Liner Wednesday – Difficult Concepts


My darling youngest son came home from school on Friday and told me that Monday, his class would be outside planting flowers. He said they needed to wear “old clothes” because they’d be getting dirty. When I said, okay, that’s fine, he asked me when we’d be going to the mall to buy some “old clothes.”

Yeah. Some things don’t seem to translate from sign language very well. Or maybe he just didn’t get it.

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!

    I damn near bought two obviously old shirts at the Goodwill last weekend, cause they just looked so comfy… But I have plenty of old clothes bought new… Really, I do.

  21. I get most of my old clothes at the thrift store. All of my clothes are old. No, wait! I bought new black socks a few months ago!

  24. Unless you get hand-me-downs, it’s hard to keep kids in old clothes — they grow out of them too fast! In my family, we had a thousand cousins and little money, so we always said we didn’t have family heirlooms, we had clothes. 😀 Here’s my one-liner for the week:

  28. I think “old clothes” might be the $100 pair of jeans with holes in the knees.

  29. That’s funny. Although I have seen ads for jeans that are made to look like you’ve been working in dirt. I don’t get it, but…

    Though I have to say when we do things that require old clothes in nursery, it’s amazing how many people come in, in new ‘old clothes’!
