Antiverbs

An apple a day doesn’t fall far from the tree
But once a week or so one makes a significant leap

Clarity begins at home

If you can’t beat them, try again

I’ll take my tea in the desert.
It never rains, but it pours

Mind what you think to yourself
When drifting off, those thoughts will sink in overnight
Look before you sleep

A maniac is known by the company he keeps
Locked away in the cellar

Jokes make the merry go round

Nothing ventured, nothing sprained

Possession is nine Tenths of the lav

  3. “Jokes make the merry go round.” BEST one ever! 🙂
    I went very far left field with the prompt and obscured the adages into a portrait — a stitch in time saves nine and a penny for your thoughts….obscured and changed. But — I LOVE LOVE these! Wish I’d gone this rounte instead. Ah well……..
