One-Liner Wednesday — Time to Change Diapers


“Politicians are like diapers, they need to be changed often, and for the same reasons.”

Mark Twain, American writer and humorist

Okay, I know just yesterday in this post I said I wasn’t going to be posting about Trump or politics again, but this quote from Mark Twain is more about humor than politics. And to prove it, I categorized this post as “Humor” and not as “Politics.”

Written for today’s One-Liner Wednesday prompt from Linda G. Hill.

Share Your World — Trees, Bridges, Sacrifices, and Priorities

Share Your WorldMelanie is at it again with her Share Your World prompt. These are so much fun and I look forward to Mondays for no other reason than to respond to her questions. So let’s get to it.

Do you have a favorite kind of tree?

What bridges are you happy you burned?

Wait just a minute there, young lady. Are you implying that I’m some sort of arsonist and go around setting fires on bridges? I’ve never burned a single bridge down in my whole life and I resent the inference. How dare you?

Would you sacrifice yourself (die) for a stranger?

For a total stranger? Are you nuts?

How have your priorities changed since the C-19 virus took over?

Absolutely my priorities have changed. My number one priority is to not get the C-19 virus!
