SoCS – Every little bit helps…


My mother had a saying, and I think of it every time I either think or say, “Every little bit helps.”

Because in most cases, every little bit does help … something.

And I have no idea where she got the part that goes at the end of “every little bit helps…”

But I’ve never heard anyone else say it. Only my mum.

So when I’m reminded that every little bit helps…

And that most times it does…

I think of my mother’s saying and I realise that sometimes…

a little bit really is a little bit.

The rest of the saying? You’re probably wondering by now…

“Every little bit helps…

…said the old lady as she peed in the sea.”

  1. The first part is one of my favorite sayings. Now, I’m thinking about how many ocean dwellers pee in the sea. I’ll still go swimming, though.


  2. That’s a good one. I may never think of the first part the same way again.


  3. My parents, too, said, “Every little bit helps” though I don’t recall them ever saying the second part – – but….My dad used to say, “Ahh….it’s all coming back to me….said the man as he peed into the wind….” – – 😀

  9. As she peed in the sea? That’s so weird, but I guess when you gotta go, you gotta go, right?
