The Art of the One-Liner

January 14, 2011

From C.’s mother:

“Piss into one hand and wish into the other and see which hand fills up first.”

Interpretation: you can hope and dream all you please, but sometimes you don’t get what you want.

From R.R. in California:

“Sweet talk…it’s endearing and enduring!”

Interpretation: sometimes, something nice is just what the doctor ordered, and even the tiniest bit of sweetness can last all day. Think of the all-day lollipop, for instance, or telling someone they make you smile.

From Z., via email:

“Alone and lonely are two very different things. And, each experience can turn on a dime.”

Interpretation: solitude, in small doses, does the body good. In excess, it swings a swift punch at the heart. Take care to avoid the extremes.

From my nephew (recited over and over to anyone who will listen, all week long):

“I puke in my bed! It so funny! I throw up from my mouth like BLEHHHHHHHHHHHHH!”

Interpretation: a little party goes a long way.

Second interpretation: bodies ARE pretty funny, especially the stuff that comes outta them.

    I loved this entry. I am very susceptible to mottos and bon mots. I actually find them very inspiring, especially when delivered by people I admire, or, at least, enjoy.
