As a tribute to Dan Antion, our outgoing-badge designer and guy who can’t write a one-liner to save his life, my own One-Liner Wednesday is going to go a bit long.
I was sitting on the couch tonight, minding my own business, when Winston started to whine. I looked up and saw him sitting in the middle of the floor looking down at nothing.
“What is it?” I asked him.
He gave me a pained look as if to say, If I could talk, I wouldn’t be sitting here crying.
So I went over to see what he was whining at. There was still nothing.
I asked him again, “What is it?”
And that’s when he pointed to something with his nose. I bent down to get a closer look, and low and behold there was an ant. It was a fair-sized one, and it was still very much alive.
I praised Winston for letting me know we had a bug in the house, and I went to get a tissue to scoop it up and get rid of it.
Why he didn’t just step on it or eat it I have no idea. But he did tell me about it.
Good dog, Winston!
Cheers to Dan for his lovely badge! We’ll miss it! Thank you, Mr. Antion!

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!
