I realize that I HAVE been tagged by I think, three blogging buddies this week and I promise I will fulfill my tagging duties for each and every one but right now my brain is completely cloudy so it won’t be today. : )
This thought has been on my mind a lot lately though so I decided to jot it down for your edification. I couldn’t think of a more direct title for this post so there it is. I don’t know how much explaining that title really requires so I’ll just launch in:
“Fatty fatty two by four, can’t get through the kitchen door” Ok, I get the fatty thing but to call someone a “two by four” sort of implies long and skinny, right? I mean, if you MUST use some sort of description to give a visual of JUST how big someone is…then let’s not give mixed signals. Tall, skinny kid, tall skinny kid, two by four, has to duck to get through the kitchen door. How ’bout that?
“Liar, liar, pants on fire, nose as long as a telephone wire” Again, I get the nose reference, thinking it is a pinocchio thing but WHY the pants on fire? What’s that about? How does being a liar somehow endow one with flaming drawers?
And lastly, “I smell a rat” I don’t know if rats stink or what. I am glad to say I’ve not had to share close quarters with them to date so I wouldn’t know what sort of odor they emit. I understand that if someone is deceitful that the poor rat tends to shoulder the metaphorical burden of that comparison but why say you SMELL a rat? You see what I’m saying here?
I’m sure there are more out there but these are the ones that came to me today as I thought hard about what sort of wisdom to convey upon you today.
