We hadn’t been to the movies 🎥 in a while. When I heard this line in Ghostbusters: Afterlife, I knew it’d be my #1linerWeds. I’m such a nerd. 😂

Using a Thanksgiving theme, this came from the TV show The Goldbergs. Their final season. Such a funny show relatable to those of a certain age. #TheEightiesRule

Linda mentions a weird moon and I just read that starting this Friday in the wee hours of the morning we will experience a partial lunar eclipse. One for the record books I believe. But they are predicting cloudy weather to obscure viewing in Florida. Hope Texas weather fairs better. When I was younger I set an alarm for these events. But now, I prefer sleep. lol.

Alrighty enough blathering about. Here is my offering today. Borrowed from the masterful Rod Serling.

I need to get it out of my gut … write it down. This is the way it began for me.

I stumbled across the above as I scrolled through Twitter last weekend. I knew I wanted it to be my one-liner. I sometimes refer to writing as releasing the hounds. Though lately, I find myself holding back. Time for a gut check. To join in, HERE are the rules and ping back.

I love old abandoned buildings too. Unless they are large commercial buildings like malls that have died. Those are creepy.

Yesterday or day before, I forget which as they all blur together something confidential went down. As a very small group of us discussed how to react, what we could share, etc. someone (not me) quoted a line from a 2018 comedy. No one remembered the movie title but we laughed and the humor was needed to break the tension. Wondering if anyone knows where this line came from … it was probably recycled for the movie.

Snitches get stitches.

No news is always good news.

I met a really nice person at work the other day. We’ve had a few meetings and he is always extremely polite. Calls me Miss Jill. As we were working through the meeting on our options, I noticed he was using quite a few colloquialisms. And of course you guys know I do that too. He said something I’ve never heard before and it made me smile. A nice way of saying bring it! I knew it would be a good one liner. Hope you agree.

If you’ve got a problem say it, I’m 6’6” I can take it!

He’s no where near 6’6” but Zoom is deceiving. Still I’ve no doubt he can take it. To join in, here are the rules and ping back.

That chart does look like a cat. Has to be good luck for continued sales. Every Wednesday Linda G Hill brings us this prompt. To join in, here are the rules and ping back.

Preamble – you know those people in meetings who always have to talk? I’m not one of them. I know you’re shocked. Pretty sure I give off a vibe as a talky know-it-all. I like being the smartest person in the room … truly I do. Sometimes. Very few times. Never. Ya see, I fully recognize more often than not, someone else in that room is way smarter than me. And I’d do well to shut up and listen. Maybe learn a thing or two. Which brings me to today’s one liner, courtesy of my coworker from our convo on this topic.

Sometimes I know the answer and I still won’t say anything.

MW my coworker

Maybe keeping my mouth shut is my versions of picking your battles or surviving in the corporate wild? Let the younger go-getters who always have to be right learn the hard way. But actually this has nothing to do with age. I’m convinced these aggressive overtalkers have a distinct personality trait which compels them to speak gibberish in crowds and to come hell or high water always be RIGHT. Me? I’ll stay a little to the left. wink wink 🙂

As always. more to come.

I’ve been reading a lot and when I read I keep a commonplace book. I don’t remember what I was reading when I captured this but since the weather turned cooler, I think it fits today.

Gloves? … you mean bitch mittens


Oh wait! The gloves this quote refers to is of the boxing variety. Yep there’s such a thing as gloveless boxing. Ouch! Hope no one is offended by my ‘repeat Polly’ use of bitch. Happy Wednesday folks. Carry On.

Not a cheat – days are long is one line. Hope Alex is feeling better soon. My offering follows:

This one liner joke was placed strategically in one of the bags from our curbside pickup. The clerk could hardly contain himself. Miss Jill, there’s something extra for you when you’re unloading the groceries. I was hoping for candy; they did that last October. Instead I found this note. Cute huh?

Why do vampires always keep their promises? Because they stake their life on it.
