Appalachian Phrase of the Day
Do you ever have those moments, when speaking with an adult, that you wonder how they function in life? How do they get along, socialize, and make it through a daily routine?
For me it seems to happen when I encounter a person who can't see the forest for the trees. One who is so encompassed in his/her own beliefs that they cannot see the outside world. This has happened a fair amount lately. Perhaps it is the politics and the nature of our world today. Whatever it is I have a phrase that keeps my mind bright and positive.
"He's so dumb he could throw his self on the ground and miss."
Now, I don't say it aloud, but it does provide me some mental relief and a bit of a laugh.
In fact I can barely utter it without breaking down in laughter. I hope it gives you a good laugh today. No doubt we could all use one.
