I’ve heard many a helpful sentiment this week, and I appreciate them all. Truly do.
Since I’m a nerdy word peep, I probed my brain’s recesses for more wise sayings, you know, to get through this interesting situation I find myself mired in. Then I had an “aha moment”. What would these aphorisms be like with a slight twist?
I present to you shaken and stirred, twisted and bent, new Parables:
· The kettle does not care whether you are watching or not.
· The early worm gets eaten by the bird.
· You can’t have everything, where would you put it?
· Once bitten by two dogs.
· When days are dark turn on the light.
· When friends are few enjoy the abundance.
· A bird in hand is worth two on a dating site.
· God helps those who don’t need help.
· Only drunk people ever have to say ‘I’m not drunk’.
· Leave all the stones unturned unless you are looking for insects and worms.
· Denial is not just a river in Egypt.
· Pennywise pound millionaire.
· If your parents never had children, chances are you won’t, either.
· When one door is closed it quickly becomes a fad.
· He who hesitates probably smoked weed.
· Time wounds all heels.
· Never insult an alligator until after you have crossed the river.
· Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow we will be broke.

What parable missed twisting?
