One-Liner Wednesday – It’s Surreal

***

“Meow-Meow”

 

This is the one liner that my cat, Cricket, says to me every single morning!

I know exactly what she is wanting. She wants to be brushed. Every morning after breakfast, and I’m done with washing dishes, Cricket will take her usual position on the back of the little couch we have. As soon as I shut off the water, and turn toward the living room, she says to me, “Meow-Meow”. It’s always just the two, fast little meows. 🙂 Of course I give her a good brushing, and then we play with her special ribbon. She’s had that piece of ribbon since she was a tiny kitten. Then, after playing, I recharge her catnip toys, and she is on to her good start of the day.

ONE LINER WEDNESDAY – DID I JUST HEAR THAT?

Standard

ONE LINER WEDNESDAY – DID I JUST HEAR THAT?

“The sun is being regurgitated.”

“The clouds will start to coagulate…”

“…wear your rain sufficient dressing…”

I’m lumping these one liners together, because they all came from television weather newscasters in the last couple of days. What they said really made us do a double-take, and ask, “Did I just hear that?” We had to laugh!

On viewing the eclipse, one national weather news person remarked, “The sun is being regurgitated.” This was after totality, and the sun became visible again.

Our local weather person, just ad-libbing during the weather report, said the following on two different days. “The clouds will start to coagulate together to bring us rain.” and “Make sure you wear your rain sufficient dressing today.”

“Why is everybody leaving?”

 

 

  • I went to see a hot-air balloon festival/demonstration (with my daughter)…but we were too late…People were leaving, and the balloons were already packed up and gone when we got there…so we sat out in the parking lot, just eating our McDonald’s breakfast, then went home, laughing at ourselves.

“Don’t Let Him Off the Leash!”

***

This is my daughter’s dog, Maynard Wayne. He’s a big, friendly, and boisterous dog.

One morning my husband wanted to take him for a walk, down to the lake by our house, so we put him on the leash, and off they went out the back gate. My daughter and I watched from the back porch, as dog and man made their way toward the water.

Now, what did we say, right before they left? “Don’t let him off the leash!” That’s because he’d be off and running wild, and when he’s like that, he doesn’t want to pay attention to the rules.

Sure enough, as we watched, the first thing that happened was, he was let off the leash. We just shook our heads and watched the drama take place.

Maynard took off  like a shot, jumped in the lake, and started swimming to the other side. We could hear my husband hollering, “Maynard, come back!”, and trying to run around to the other side of the lake to intercept him. This went on awhile. Finally, he caught up with the dog, and put his leash back on, and they trudged back to the house, Maynard dripping wet, with stinky lake water. We had to immediately give him a bath. He hates baths. He loves swimming in old lake water, but hates to be bathed…go figure.

This was a good time to say, “We told you not to let him off the leash!”

P.S. Maynard, his brother dog, and the family are coming to visit again, this weekend! Whee!

One-Liner Wednesday – Almost back to normal

“Mayonnaise shrinks it.”

***

Have you ever had a phrase or word that is stuck in your head, that you have to say to yourself, or even out loud, on specific occasions?

This one-liner I have had to repeat to myself for probably the last 45 years or so. My cousin and I were making tuna fish sandwiches one day, and when she added the mayonnaise to the other ingredients in the bowl, she said, “Mayonnaise shrinks it.”

I’d never heard this before, but it’s true. When you add mayo to something, then mush it up, the food seems to get smaller as it is incorporated into it.

Anyway, now I have to repeat this every single time I use mayonnaise.

By the way, how do you say mayonnaise? Do you just shorten it (haha or shrink it) to the word ‘mayo’? Do you say the whole word every time? How do you pronounce it? This is how I grew up hearing it said… Man-aze. 🙂

“On what planet in the Universe does that make any sense?”

This is what my husband said to the person on the phone. He was talking to the cable company. They’d told him it would cost us even more money, if we cut down the number of channel packages we had.

IT’S JOHN WAYNE – for ONE – LINER WEDNESDAY

One-Liner Wednesday – He’s at it yet again

“But, it’s John Wayne!!” …

A lady said this to me at a yard sale, a long time ago. I was looking at the things she had for sale, and saw some VHS tapes. They were home-made, taped from the television ones she’d recorded. The price she’d put on them was outrageous. I can’t remember the exact amount she was charging, but was something between $5 and $15 dollars each. One was some movie that John Wayne was starring in.

I asked her if that was really what she wanted for them, and she said yes. I asked why so much, when I could buy used tapes all day, at other places, for a quarter or fifty cents, and I could buy brand new ones for less than what she was charging.

That’s when she said, “But, it’s John Wayne!!”

hahaha … I didn’t buy them. 🙂

“Have you seen Bop?”

“What does she look like?”

“She has black hair, and is tall like Mama”

***

My 3 year old grand-daughter, describing me to a sales clerk at a store. The clerk told me what she’d said.

Good description…could have been worse!

I guess to her, I’m tall, but at 5’4″ I wouldn’t consider it being tall. 🙂

She wasn’t really lost in the store. We were keeping an eye on her.

I’ve been reading entries for the One-Liner Wednesday challenge for quite awhile, and they are always fun to read. This is my first one to take part in. If you’d like to join in, also, find the details at the above link.

So, I texted my daughters a happy 4th of July yesterday, and added a flag emoji. Well, you know on the phone how small those things are, and it’s hard for me to see them, plus my fingers most times hit the wrong one. Anyway, here’s what my daughter texted me back…

“That’s the Liberian flag.”

Yep, I put the wrong flag on there. Oops! 🙂
