Fandango’s February Expressions #5


Children should be seen and not heard.

Each day during the month of February, at around 6 am Pacific Time, I will be posting an old adage, an old saying, a familiar expression that we’ve all heard and have probably used during our lifetimes. Your assignment, should you choose to accept it, will be to post a story, a poem, an image, an interpretation of what the expression means to you, or to do whatever it is that you want to do based upon the daily adage.

Please tag your post with #FFE and create a pingback to this post or include your link in a comment on each day’s post.

Have fun and be sure to read what others have posted in response to this prompt.

      I know you don’t like kids, but sometimes, if you hear what they have to say, there’s a lot to be heard and learned.

    I’ve never believed or thought this.

      I enjoyed yours, Crushed Caramel. I’d one to quite this part: Could it be that those adults who do so, no longer know how to think outside the box? Have they become boxed-in puppets of a global commercial system that always wants more, and wants to protect what it has and not share it with others?

        Sigh; correction: not “one to quite” — like to quote …

    Since I don’t agree with this one I am not able to bend my writing around to get to this point. Maybe next one.

    Excellent, Salted Caramel.
