I recently had a misfortune, however, the end result was not near as bad as it could have been... In an attempt to "make room" in the frige for something, I dropped the container of eggs on the floor - an 18 pk which contained 10 eggs ( I discovered when
I opened it, fearing the worst!) What ran through my mind after the OH ****, was the old saying as I recalled it. I have since done a bit of research, and the proper is:
You can't make an omelette without breaking a few eggs!
Only 4 of the 10 had cracked... The yolks were all intact, which I found amazing! I used 2 of them for breakfast, and as I've done a time or two in the past, put the remaining 2 eggs in a container for later... back in the frige, of course!
This brought forth a few thoughts, some of them well known, but I took it all a step further, and did some reasearch tonight... Here's what I stumbled across...
Don't cry over spilled milk. (I've heard that one all of my life!)
If the people don't have bread, let them eat cake! (attributed to Marie Antoinette.) I think I learned this in History class, but also may have been a "line" in a movie which ended with Marie "losing her head!"
Benjamin Franklin is quoted as saying " Onions can make even an Heirs and Widows weep."
I also found one that says, Life is like an onion. You peel away layer after layer, and find that the inside is empty. (is it me, or does "ashes to ashes" come to mind?)
What you see before you, my friend, is a lifetime of chocolate. (Katherine Hepburn.)
An Irish toast, which I liked.
Here's to cheating, stealing, fighting, and drinking.
If you cheat, cheat death.
If you steal, steal a woman's heart.
If you fight, fight for a brother.
If you drink, drink with ME!
A line from the movie "Steel Magnolias" (if I've not misquoted) Olympia Dukakas says at a holiday party: If you don't have anything good to say, sit next to me! (ok, no food in that one, but still.... Can we talk GOSSIP?)
This one cracked me up (if you know me, you know I have a "twisted" sense of humor!)
Mario Batali is quoted as saying,
How can I take is seriously? Even my best work turns to poop the next day! (This during an interview discussing his success and notoriety.)
Couldn't resist, and my original intent was simply to list a number of "old time sayings," most of which we've all heard, but I could only come up with 4 of these listed...
Have a great day, and don't forget to be crazy and :) Afterall, you could BURN the SALAD tonight, or forget the recipe for ice cubes.... (those are mine!)
