It has been an exceptionally difficult year. Hopefully this Spring will bring some welcome relief from the virus.
In place of my usual narrative, I decided I would share part of an email that was sent to me. I think that at this time we could all use a good chuckle.
An Elementary School Teacher presented each child in her classroom the 1st half of a well-known proverb and asked them to come up with the remainder of the proverb. It's hard to believe these were actually done by first graders. Their insight may surprise you. While reading, keep in mind that these are first-graders, 6-year-olds . The last one is a classic!
1. Don't change horses until they stop running.
2. Strike while the bug is close.
3. You can lead a horse to water but how?
4. A miss is as good as a Mr.
5. If you lie down with dogs, you'll stink in the morning.
6. Where there's smoke there's pollution.
7. Happy the bride who gets all the presents.
8. A penny saved is not much.
9. Children should be seen and not spanked or grounded.
And the WINNER and last one!
10. Better late than pregnant.
