One-Liner Wednesday – Maybe not happy, but…

Created on

This has long been my philosophy.

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!

299. Scenes from the Second Seat on the Right

Tuesday, June 26th, 5:00pm
Meredith (and Vijay)


Meredith sits at the window. Vijay takes the seat beside her.

Meredith: Do I look fat in this?

Vijay: I beg your pardon?

Meredith: Fat. Do I look fat in this dress?

Vijay: I am sorry, I cannot comment on your dress or your body. My wife would not like it.

Meredith: (looks around) Is your wife here?

Vijay: No, she is not.

Meredith: I won’t tell her if you don’t. Now. Do I look fat in this?

Vijay: I still cannot comment.

Meredith: Why not?

Vijay: Because I am afraid I will say the wrong thing and then you will be angry at me.

Meredith: You think I look fat, don’t you.

Vijay: I did not say that.

Meredith: You do! How dare you!

Vijay: In my defense madam, I did not say anything.

Meredith: You didn’t have to! I should have known better than to ask a man.

Vijay: This is very true.
