I’ve been thinking about all the household axioms: you know, cliches or “old wives tales”. I find some of them highly suspect and/or amusing. Let’s take a look:
Don’t count your chickens before they hatch. Well, yeah, some of them could die or something. But if you don’t count at all, how do you know how many chicks to be expecting?
Similarly, Don’t put all your eggs in one basket. But what if you only have one basket? Then what?
It’ll all come out in the wash. Whoever said that clearly never had a kid with a Sharpie left unattended.
Like stapling Jello to the wall. Who would want to do that? Your wall would get all sticky.
Too many cooks in the kitchen. With me, there could never be too many cooks. Unless one of those cooks is Heather.
Okay, Home Eccers. I’ve made enough fun of the old sayings. It’s your turn. Which ones have you found strange or funny?
