One-Liner Wednesday — Cats


“In ancient times cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.”

Author Terry Pratchett

Pratchett’s quote about cats being worshipped as gods reminds me of something someone once told me about the difference between cats and dogs.

A dog looks at you and thinks to himself, “You feed me, you shelter me, you love me. You must be God!” A cat looks at you and thinks to himself, “You feed me, you shelter me, you love me. I must be God!”

One-Liner Wednesday — Behind Every….

“There’s always some truth behind every ‘just kidding,’ knowledge behind every ‘I don’t know,’ emotions behind every ‘I don’t care,’ and pain behind every ‘it’s okay.’”

Note: I composed this post before I read Linda’s suggestion to “go to the following link and plug in your birth year to find your favorite words from the year you were born. Make a sentence out of them!”

I thought that suggestion was a bit absurd, given the buzzwords that were distinctive from the year of my birth, many of which were bare-bones, bite-sized, fast-talk fallout that seemed to lack any recognizable human factor, and that would soon become over-the-hill word roadkill.

The words above in red were, according to the site Linda asked us to link to, among those that were first used in print in the year of my birth.

One-Liner Wednesday — Another Yogi

5F884453-7C9B-4081-A1EC-4ED23A09D9EEIn my One-Liner Wednesday response last week, I quoted baseball legend Yogi Berra. I thought, given that Yogi is full of these one-liner gems, I’d hit him up again for this week’s One-Liner Wednesday prompt from Linda G. Hill.

“You should always go to other people’s funerals, otherwise, they won’t come to yours.”

Yogi was full of these tidbits of wisdom, wasn’t he?
