Proverbs

A 1st grade school teacher had twenty-six students in her class. She presented each child in her classroom the 1st half of a well-known proverb and asked them to come up with the remainder of the proverb.

It’s hard to believe these were actually done by first graders. Their insight may surprise you. While reading, keep in mind that these are first-graders, 6-year-olds, because the last one is a classic!

Don’t change horses …until they stop running.
Strike while the …bug is close.
It’s always darkest before …Daylight Saving Time.
Never underestimate the power of …termites.
You can lead a horse to water but …How?
Don’t bite the hand that …looks dirty.
No news is …impossible.
A miss is as good as a …Mr.
You can’t teach an old dog new …Math.
If you lie down with dogs, you’ll …stink in the morning.
Love all, trust …Me.
The pen is mightier than the …pigs.
An idle mind is …the best way to relax.
Where there’s smoke there’s …pollution.
Happy the bride who …gets all the presents.
A penny saved is …not much.
Two’s company, three’s …the Musketeers.
Don’t put off till tomorrow what …you put on to go to bed.
Laugh and the whole world laughs with you, cry and …You have to blow your nose.
There are none so blind as …Stevie Wonder.
Children should be seen and not …spanked or grounded.
If at first you don’t succeed …get new batteries.
You get out of something only what you …See in the picture on the box.
When the blind lead the blind …get out of the way.
A bird in the hand …is going to poop on you.

And the WINNER and last one!

Better late than … Pregnant!

Bought vs Homemade

Six year old Annie returns home from school and says that today she had her first family planning lesson at school.

Her mother, very interested, asks: “Oh. How did it go?”

“I nearly died of shame!” she answers. “Sam from down the street says the stork brings babies. Sally next door said you can buy babies at the orphanage. Pete in my class says you can buy babies at the hospital.”

Her mother answers laughingly, “But that’s no reason to be ashamed.”

“No, but I can’t tell them that we were so poor that you and daddy had to make me yourselves!

Wednesdays Question

It’s Wednesday so that means it’s question time. It’s time to ponder and then answer just one question. Okay, you can add all you want as a reason for your answer too. We’d all like that.

So here’s this weeks question: Do you enjoy ‘virtual relationships?’

Big time. I’ve met so many people while blogging and some of them literally. It’s a great place to make friends, but it’s also a place to run into toxic people. I’ve met many of those too and it sometimes takes a bit to see the real person.

The other thing I’ve noticed is people come and go. There are friends that I’ve had from the beginning of blogging and still have in my life to this day, but many just disappeared. Wish I knew where because I’d hook back up with them if I could.
