One Liner Wednesday – Misconceptions

How often have you sat in an airport lounge or a shopping mall or maybe a doctor’s office and took a good look at everyone waiting. I’m sure you do what I do and start imagining what those people do for a living, what their spouses or partners are like, and what they might even say to each other when no one else is around. In a way it can be fun when you play with someone else because they usually come up with a completely different scenario than you. It passes the time, that’s for sure. Have you ever been certain you know what someone is like and then they surprise you and are the complete opposite of what you imagined? For instance, do any of you really know me? Hmmm?

Have a great Wednesday! 🤣

For Linda G. Hill’s One Liner Wednesday

Not Welcome – A Quadrille

Not Welcome

Old photographs
familiar scents
A forgotten song 
sending me to 
where you still
hover on the perimeter
of my life
Popping in and out
as if still welcome
Memories were good
until they weren’t 
Where is the pop-up blocker
when you need it most?
