Wacky Wednesday


45 comments:

  1. Thanks for these fine examples of L'esprit de l'escalier --a French term for "stairway wit" or thinking of the right reply only after leaving a gathering, a malady I have always suffered. But I shall memorize the 1st one because I will doubtless need it again!

    1. I'm with you, Geo. My great responses are always made several hours after the fact when I'm alone:)
      Also thanks for sharing the definition of stairway wit.

    1. I can remember when the HH first wanted to get a remote and I thought it was the height of laziness. I'd be whining like crazy today if I had to get up and change the channel.

  8. Hi, Sandra!

    Good ones, all of them!

    Kids today don't know how easy they have it. When I was young, state-of-the-art technology was the coal-burning television. I got tired of shoveling!

    Happy Wacky Wednesday to you, dear friend!

  12. LOL at the TV one. Of course I never had to walk the 9 feet. It was my job to sit beside the TV and change the channels and volume as I was told.

  13. Ha! The first one made me laugh. I hate it when people interrupt me, especially when I'm making a point.

  14. Number 2 is me all the way. I can't talk for the life of me, but write it down - I'm there!
    Love the humor!

  18. I'm going to have to try that interrupting one sometimes. I've been trying to find a way to say that all my life! I've often said something like, "Oh, I'm sorry...did my talking interrupt your interrupting?" but this sounds MUCH more powerful!
