I went to the dentist. My teeth are fine.
Sour, Sweet, Gone.
Yeah, sounds about right.
The Sour Patch Kid? Would That make Nina a lemon drop?
I do love a good lemon drop.
No snub to Thomas, but this reminds me of the poster that says: “Have a nice Day!….until some S.O.B. louses it up!” :p
[ I think this motto is on a t-shirt, too].
I’d go with:(on the front, in LARGE print)— “Have A Nice Day…”(on the back, in LARGE print)— “…While It Lasts!”(beneath, in small print)— “…they never do…”
I’m happy for you jackie that your teeth are ok :)
Lucky devil. I gotta go into the dentist today myself. Broken molar making my jaw feel like there is an ex in there stabbing.
Good to hear that some part of your body is working okay, particularly as that is an expensive area to be having problems.
I think the word you were looking for was “paradigm” not idiom Jackie. Idiom is more of a type of metaphor.
3: a style or form of artistic expression that is characteristic of an individual, a period or movement, or a medium or instrument the modern jazz idiom; broadly : manner, style a new culinary idiom
Jackie, you are right. A paradigm is more like a defining example, like the way “Amo, amas, amat …” defined the first conjugation of Latin verbs. The things you list are not examples. Tey are idioms.
Also, “Idiom” makes it a reference to Monty Python and the Holy Grail. And Monty Python references improve everything!
Well, not coffee,… or ice cream, but the Pythons make everything else in life better.(I mean; you can’t improve ice cream,… Unless it was COFFEE Ice Cream!)
I’m happy to hear about you teeth, teeth are really important for health in early life. And middle life and late life, they can set the stage for a good end of life or a rotten one.
I’d take a page out of Londo Mollari’s book. “Moon-faced Assassin of Joy” has such a lovely ring to it.
My wife always calls me her sour patch kid.
What do you call her?
LOL, she does NOT like that name… There are many things I call her.. Wiffy, my little koala, but more often than not I call her fruitcake.
I’m kinda like Thomas here too. Trying to be less like it, because I did it too much and got grumpy. Don’t want to ignore reality either. Weirdest thing is I got grumpy despite being sure it’ll get better. Check out Matthew 24:3-14 (click my name).
