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.”

One-Liner Wednesday – Not to make light of a serious situation …

…but don’t you think this has a sort of “What did I tell you three hours ago, mister?” vibe to it?

One-Liner Wednesday – Snacks

“That’s crackers!”

“That’s nuts!”

Why do snacks = crazy?

Next time I see something off-the-wall, I’m going to say, “That’s snacks!” and wait for everyone to look at me like I’m … well … yummy.

A Belated #JusJoJan the 17th – Joy

As promised, I’m catching up on the #JusJoJan posts. The prompt for this post was brought to you by Just Jot it January in February and Indieshe! Check out Indieshe’s blog here!

***

I’m generally a joyful person.

I tend to find the silver lining in things.

Or at least the platinum lining.

The nickel lining?

Okay, sometimes it’s plastic. But it’s happy plastic.

I drank some wine the other night. That made me joyful.

Until it made me tired.

It was the last bottle of the batch of 30 I made, like, more than two years ago, before Christmas of 2019.

I used to drink enough wine to make batches of it worthwhile.

But now?

Not so much.

I find not a lot of joy in a bottle. Just sleepiness.

But you see? Wine comes in glass bottles.

Not happy plastic.

***

Watch out for Just Jot it January next year. It’s fun!

One-Liner Wednesday – Words to live by

Someone handed out advice in one of my editors’ groups today saying we shouldn’t correct anyone’s grammar unless we’re being paid to.

I said those are words I live by. Also, they’re words I live on.

(Get it?)

One-Liner Wednesday – Camera shy

I woke up the other day with the cat staring down at me. But do you think he’ll look at me when I’m trying to take his picture?

No way.

One-Liner Wednesday – Cinnamon

 

I love cinnamon bagels, but they make everything in my kitchen smell like cinnamon. Cinnamon bananas, anyone?
