314. Scenes from the Second Seat on the Right

Wednesday, July 11th, 5:00pm
Devin and Dale


Devin: So I was late for work this morning.

Dale: Oh yeah? How come?

Devin: I forgot to turn the dishwasher off before I left the apartment, so I had to turn around and go back.

Dale: Doesn’t your dishwasher turn itself off?

Devin: No. If he runs out of dishes at our place he goes to the neighbour’s.

Dale: Errr …

Devin: My husband’s a little compulsive that way.

Dale: So how do you turn him off?

Devin: Hand him the vacuum. He’ll still be doing it when I get home tonight.

Dale: You must have a very clean apartment.

Devin: (sighs) Yeah. Especially if I don’t watch him on garbage day.

One-Liner Wednesday – Like a ghost caught on camera

Out walking with Alex the other evening, he spied a rabbit and asked me to take a picture. It’s cute, but I’m more interested in the strange light shining on the house next door. Yes, the sun was going down and that’s a west-facing wall, but the two houses are the same size in depth. Weird.

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 lovely new badge to your post for extra exposure!

5. Have fun!
