Tell and Show



A picture is worth a thousand words, but have you ever overheard something in a cafe or at work that made you rubber neck to find out if what you heard was actually what was said?  That seems to be a regular occurrence in my household, so we’ve started a list of the oddest things we’ve found ourselves saying:


“You can’t fold your clothes if you are in that cauldron with that hippo!”


“Be careful of  Johnny Depp in my bathtub!”


“Stop shedding deer hair on the counter!”


“Why is there an octopus in a snowflake mug?”


“I think you have an escaped alpaca!”


Of course, there are perfectly sensible explanations for all of these declarations, but taken out of context…they sound like bad middle school writing prompts…or blog post titles….
