My child's fifth grade teacher had her class finish well known proverbs. Obviously the ten-teen has never read Proverbs or heard a proverb, an oversight on my part, but she comes from a humorous household even though that was not our intent. Here's what she SAID:
It's always darkest before..... IT IS LIGHT. (I'd give her credit for that. Makes sense to me)
A watched pot....IS A WIERD POT. (Given the limited number of pots and pans in our house that's all she could say)
You can lead a horse to water, but..... NOT TO SCHOOL (OK, we live in Texas. I'd count that.)
A woman's work..... IS GOOD WORK. (You tell'em kid)
If at first you don't succeed, THEN STILL WORK. (No welfare for this kid)
Don't bite the hand that...... IS WEAK. (I guess it wouldn't taste as good)
All that glitters..... IS GOOD! (Just check out her Justice wardrobe if you don't believe her)
Two's company, three's..... PROFESSIONAL. (I thought I had that channel locked!)
If you can't stand the heat, DON'T EAT IT. (Jalapeno's last night)
A chain is as strong as..... YOUR HEART. (Whoa, now that's profound)
Dance with the one..... WITH TALENT. (Such a smart child)
Give him an inch...... OR A YARD. (Must be talking about her brother)
A fool and his money..... IS NOT COOL. (Tell that to the government)
Loose lips..... IS BAD. (So she is saving for Botox, right?)
Maybe I should turn this blog writing over to the children!
Merry Christmas, Ya'll!
