Axioms With A Twist

“A day without sunshine is like...  well... night”
A brilliant axiom I say
To the person that uttered this amazing observation
You certainly just made my day

“If the world didn't suck, we'd all fall off”
That's a mighty safe assumption
So stop your belly aching and enjoy yourself
Invite someone for some munchin'

“Don't sweat the petty things or pet the sweaty things”
Surely can get pretty gross
Especially if a person hasn't bathed for a month
Takes the thrill outta being close

“I started with nothing and still have most of it”
This one most certainly hits home
I'm sure almost everyone can relate to these words
Sorry I didn't listen to that gnome

“You can't have it all coz where would you put it”
I'll figure something out you can bet 
Buy me a mansion with seventy-three rooms
Become the happiest pack rat yet

    My hubby pack rats everything(almost). Our house is over flowing with papers, books, ect. He once had a room so full of stuff that some one told me not to forget to turn off the light. It was the window! The light was off! You just couldn't see the darn thing.

    I used to be like that although not to that extent... then I saw the light so to speak! LOL Now I'm a neat freak and I owe it all to my sweet loveable second wife Cathie! Huggeroonies, Jake!

    I like this Jack, but I rather stay with my small house. It's easier to clean. Thanks for sharing. Lucilla
