Ode to the Exceptions
I love old sayings and adages, but they never account for exceptions which are always more interesting to me. Here are some of my favorites:
Ignorance is bliss – unless you’re taking your driver’s test.
Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow – unless it’s CPR.
Don’t run from your problems – unless your problem is a bear.
It’s as easy as pie – unless you’re trying to make a meringue.
Curiosity killed the cat – according to the dog.
Two heads are better than one – unless you picked tails.
Save for a rainy day – unless you have solar.
With age comes wisdom – but it costs memory.
Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth – or under its tail.
The meek shall inherit the Earth – after the strong have taken all its resources.
It’s always darkest before dawn – unless there’s a total eclipse at noon.
Look before you leap – unless the building is on fire.
You’re never too old to learn – unless you’re trying to play video games.
Many hands make light work – means you need better workers.
Do unto others as you would have others do unto you – especially your proctologist.
Enjoy your weekend, tomorrow is a new day!
