Words & Pictures

I love good writing. Sentences that make you smile and even laugh. Like these:

- Her hunger eclipses her hauteur.

- Being tasteless requires good taste.

- Don't get too proud: the size of your funeral will likely depend on the weather.

- The details of their fight are too stupid to parse.

- I realize that it sounds like I'm bragging about my neighborhood. I am never sure where my bragging and my complaining meet up for coffee to agree about their views on the world.

- He presented himself as an art-lover but, really, he was just an art-liker.

One of these was written by me. Can you guess which one?


  1. The bragging one!

    I love a clever phrase too. :)

  2. I'm going guess the second one?

    They're all fantastic but the funeral one struck me. Not in a melancholy way, but we're experiencing ALL OF WINTER in a week here in TN. Brrr.

    Great pictures. The second reminds me of this burger/hotdog diner that was in La Grange, GA when i was growing up called Charlie Joseph's. I wonder if it's still there.

  3. Hmm I'm not sure which saying would have been yours but they are all good ones! :)

    Hope you had a good weekend :) Ours was nice, celebrating Lunar New Year with the family.

  4. These are terrific! Witty writing, captivating wordplay, and a smile-inducingly turn of phrase greatly appeal to me as well.

    Wishing you a safe nd very happy 2nd half of February, dear Ally.

  5. I'm going with 3...wise and witty advice about one's funeral sounds exactly like something you'd say! :D

  6. They are all good. I am going to say the Art Liker one but it could be the funeral. I'm not sure- you are very clever so it could be any of them!

  7. I can't decide which one it could be (written by you). I like the funeral one because it has a dark humour feel to it.
