I’m Just Curious: “Sayings” and “Fixes”

by Debbie Walker

Tonight I am starting out with “a saying” then I’m doing “fixes” and then back to “sayings”. Wow this is sounding like a preview to a movie!

Have you seen this before “We are all a little broken, but the last time I checked, broken crayons still color the same.” (I love colors!)? I have some projects coming up that broken crayons will be best!

Ready for the fixes? This first one has made my shopping a bit easier. Do you ever have trouble pulling a bank card or ID card from your wallet? I have had problems. No more! Make pull tabs of tape or I used the multi-colored pull tabs from office supplies. This helps you ‘gracefully’ slide the cards out instead of my usual fumbling. Love that one, it’s my newest tip!

Possible hiccup cure? I haven’t tried it. Well, give it a try and let me know, please. You don’t need to hold your breath, try sucking on a slice of lemon a few seconds. The jolt to your systems will interrupt the spasm. Good Luck!

Some may find this one upsetting. Ken did! So, you come home with sore, achy, smelly feet. You pop the top off a beer – NO! Don’t drink that! Put it in the foot soaking pan and soak your feet in it for 10 minutes. No, I did not dream that up! The carbonation, cool temp and hops, all work together for your physical relief. Put one in the foot bath and drink one for physical and emotional relaxation. (Ken is counting his beers now to see if I have had aching feet!)

In the past some of my friends would lose a button on a shirt or find a small tear in a seam. To them it was time to throw away, to me; it was time to get out the needles and thread. My brother was known to staple a hem. Someone else came up with a binder clip, clip it and remove the metal handles. It would work on dark pants. (I actually carry pre-threaded needles in my pocketbook!)

Okay back to the “sayings” (?)

I had to have some place for this one, so – “His wibbling pin came out of his wobbly hole”. (It was on a TV show but I don’t know which one. )

How about – Clutter is the evidence of life. (I am a Master of Clutter!)

Ever feel like – Your life is one tent short of a circus?

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me. I want people to know why I look this way. I’ve traveled a long way and some of the roads weren’t paved!

I can guess who the 5, 6 and 7 years olds are now. They are the ones with various front teeth missing.

Well that is enough rambling for tonight. As usual, I am just curious, what type of sayings and fixes you haven’t shared with me yet. Thank you for reading in the paper or on line. Contact me at dwdaffy@yahoo.com. Looking forward to it!
