I don't know about ye, but I got stuck with 'talking to sheep' in my head, even though there wasn't enough letters.

Insomniac, there's your problem! You're supposed to count the sheep, not converse with them.

"Every convenience brings its own inconveniences along with it. "

Like, what do you with the 90 seconds of waiting time while you reheat food in the microwave?

Roxanne on 2016-01-21 01:01:20
I thought proverbs were sort of metaphorical, like "a stitch in time saves nine." This one would be "Every 7-11 has loitering youth in the parking lot."

Funny, Roxanne. I thought a proverb was a well known axiom. A lot of these I've never heard in my pretty long life. pro·verb ˈprävərb/ noun a short pithy saying in general use, stating a general truth or piece of advice.

abra on 2017-03-12 10:58:12
I'll try again without the quotation marks. noun a short pithy saying in general use, stating a general truth or piece of advice. synonyms: saying, adage, saw, maxim, axiom, motto, bon mot, aphorism, apophthegm, epigram, gnome, dictum, precept; words of wisdom "Mama didn't just recite proverbs about decency and good sense, she lived by them.

Proverbs are a convenience, wrapping up wisdom in small packages. How inconvenient that we can never know all of them without defeating that purpose.

"We are franker towards others than towards ourselves. "

No kidding.

I wanted to be Frank with myself, but my parents kept calling me Tootsie.

JD_1947 on 2014-11-07 07:37:55
I'm pretty honest with and about myself . . . frankly I don't get it . . .

darkyr on 2016-06-27 10:03:02
I already know what I am going to say back to myself, so what is the point. Then again, I already know what others are going to say. Aha!

debzhaus on 2017-02-02 12:38:29
When my son was a little boy, he said, "When I grow up, I'm going to have four sons, and name them Frank, Frank, Frank and Frank."

"How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard." Annie

Lily H on 2011-08-10 06:28:00
This was also said by Winnie the Pooh.

LLapp on 2015-04-04 13:56:04
Annie who?

JenDiaz72 on 2015-05-08 13:00:05
Little Orphan Annie?

Highpoint on 2016-11-12 14:39:02
Annie Oakley. It was her rifle that made saying goodbye so hard. If a man dumped her, boom.
