2012-366 Day 97 – When They Say That

When they say that everyone is special . . . they don’t tell you that not everyone is using the same definition of the word “special.”

When they say that it takes two to make a thing go right . . . it doesn’t mean that the next person you see is necessarily the correct number two. (Okay, maybe just it’s just Rob Base who says that.)

When they say that you have a chip on your shoulder . . . it’s not necessarily a Kettle Chip. (But wouldn’t that be awesome if it was?)

When they say that it’s just a drop in the bucket . . . you still probably shouldn’t drink out of the bucket to see what it is.

When they say that a house divided against itself cannot stand . . . it appears they don’t get the concept of load bearing walls.

When they say that a leopard can’t change his spots . . . it’s still a bad idea to try to do it for him with permanent marker.

When they say that something is a blessing in disguise . . . you should probably still check under the veil to make sure you’re marrying the right woman. (Ooh! Old Testament burn!)

When they say that someone is a doubting Thomas . . . you know what, Thomas has probably taken enough of a beating in 2000 years. (Ooh? New Testament Anti-burn?)

When they say that you’re getting a slap on the wrist . . . make sure they’re just using their hand and not a weapon.

When they say that you’re between a rock and a hard place . . . try walking out at a 90 degree angle to either the rock or the hard place. (Wait, isn’t a hard place just a metaphorical term? Walk out through the metaphor!)

When they say that it is the dog days of summer . . . do you think dogs are offended?

When they say that you should exercise your brain by taking a different way to work in the morning . . . they don’t mean just driving the same route in reverse. (Sorry Officer MacDougal.)

When they say that you’re a big fish in a small pond . . . it doesn’t mean that you can splash around in the school’s fountains. (Sorry again, Officer MacDougal.)

When they say to walk a mile in someone else’s shoes . . . don’t steal them and then run that mile. (Again Officer MacDougal, sorry and thanks for letting me pay for bail in the pennies from my drawer.)

When they say a picture is worth a thousand words . . . Wait, I could have just been doing pictures all this time? I’m outta here.
