One-Liner Wednesday – Grammar Matters


When you try to cut down on the number of words in your text but it takes on a whole new meaning.

A text to my son. From me:

Photo: Screenshot of two text messages. #1: I will drive you to work. In the shower.

#2 (one minute later): Wait. I’M in the shower. I’ll drive you to work in the car.


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!

  13. “Ok, problem” – #2: “No Problem for me, get over yourself” #3: “Quit being so hard on yourself, no problem on my end. Do what you need to do” [phone number dialed] “Hi, for your future FYI? Don’t trust a damn thing unless you receive a long text from me long after you touched base for quick reply….. I ARRGH! Sorry…..”
