One-Liner Wednesday – “Take a break,” they said.


When I remembered I hadn’t scheduled my One-Liner Wednesday, I was watching the clock tick over from 1:19am to 1:20. I felt guilty for about five minutes, and I actually considered getting up and doing it, even though my alarm was set for three hours and forty minutes from then. Then it came to me … what everyone has been telling me: “Give yourself a break.” So I went to sleep.

Still, sorry I’m late.


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 badge to your post for extra exposure!

5. Have fun!

  3. This one-liner isn’t exactly funny or inspirational, or perhaps it can be, in its way … If we choose to do better. It may.
