A good maxim is never out of season – NaPo-BloMe


A good maxim is never out of season.

Proverbs are an area where there has not been much of a development for several decades. “All that glitters is not gold” has been around ever since, well, gold plating was invented.

I’ve come up with a few new ones that are based on personal observation, and I know them to be true.

  • ‘Some things that glitter have sharp edges’

I was 6, and I wanted to find out more about the kitchen knife.

  • ‘In for a penny, stop there’

Lets just say I made some bad investments.

  • ‘ The squeaky wheel gets spit in their food’

This is just a suspicion I have. May be, it was a type of flavourless chutney.

  •  ‘If it ain’t broke, check again’

You don’t want to get stranded in the middle of the night with a bike that won’t budge.

  • ‘Two heads are better than three’

Three of us were working on a pet project. We still haven’t decided what to do.

  • ‘If you want something done right, seek professional help’

I tried repairing my first PC on my own.

  • ‘As you make your bed, check for bed-bugs’


  • ‘Don’t cross the bridge, if it’s too narrow’

There was this bridge across this stream…

  • ‘If at first you don’t succeed, stay away from her’

You are too good for her

  • ‘If you poke holes on your roof, and it starts raining, it will feel like you are outside’

This NaBloPoMo shit  is wearing me thin. I’m withdrawing from the campaign. I can’t and I won’t write every day. I may never blog again.  Shit, this was supposed to be fun. Now it’s like I’m in school again. Screw you NaPliGleeBo.

  1. XD. I’ve read that’s more hip than LOL, which this post has me doing*. Write on your own schedule. We’ll be reading 🙂

    * Unrelated, but spellcheck says dong is a word. Spellcheck, however, is not. Curious.

    • Thank you Sofia Leo. Just googled XD. It is indeed hipper. Loved the quip about spellcheck. If the Macbeth ever underwent a spell check, all the red in it will have Sarah Palin screaming communist conspiracy. Sorry. That’s all I could come up with.
      Thanks for your comments. Any and all attention is appreciated and received with humble gratitude.
