Smile With Me

Happy Monday, Kids!

Since I can’t hand you a piece of Halloween candy through the computer screen, how about another kind of treat – like a smile or maybe even a giggle or two? πŸ˜‰

We haven’t had a Lucky Seven for AGES!

Today’s edition features paraprosdokians! My sister sent them – she’s often looking for something I might turn into a blog post. Thanks, Nancy!)

Hope they brighten your day. πŸ˜€

Seven “Paraprosdokians”

1. The early bird might get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

2. How is it one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box to start a campfire.

3. You don’t need a parachute to skydive, but you do need one to skydive again.

4. Hospitality is making your guests feel like they’re at home, even if you wish they were.

5. Some cause happiness wherever they go, others whenever they go.

6. “I’ve had a perfectly wonderful evening, but this wasn’t it.” Groucho Marx

7. If I agreed with you we’d both be wrong.

Which one do you like best?

  1. First, I had to google the “P” word to find out what the heck it meant! thank you Crissie. I always like to become more knowledgeable.

    I totally do not understand the skydive one. Must be have a Miss Clarol moment ~lol~.
    But I LOVE #7. I am going to use that one on Terry…often!

    Happy Halloween
    Much Love, Carol

  2. Hi Carol πŸ™‚

    I guess the skydive one means if you want to skydive ever again – you need a parachute the first time! πŸ˜‰

    Sorry you had to google “Paraprosdokians” – I put a link on the word, itself, but I always do wonder if that is obvious to the reader. It might be better if I put a sentence that says “read more here” or something like that.

    Thank YOU! See, you are still making my blog better!

    Love ya back! πŸ˜€

  3. Carol, that one left me scratching my head too. I am thinking without a parachute, you will need to be scraped off the sidewalk. There won’t be a 2nd time. πŸ˜€

  4. I got the skydive one, but the 2nd mouse made me think. Then I laughed!! That is my favorite. πŸ™‚
