Hi Friends,

Have you ever wondered why after a certain passage of time in your marriage, your better half becomes your bitter half? ( Not for everyone, of course. )

If you want to learn the art of criticism and also how to accept it, simply get married. Your bitter, oops, better half, will always have enough time to find faults. Your cooking is bland, honey. Didn’t your mother teach you how to cook? The gravy is too spicy. ‘I found a strand of hair in the soup. The best answer would be if you are such a stickler for the art of perfection, better take over the kitchen duties. ‘I quit. Oh, how silly of me! Your mom forgot to teach you how to boil water. Am I right?

It’s not only your spouse who has received Phd in criticism, but your kids are gold medalist in it. Watch their facial expressions change when you prepare something healthy for the family. But the mere mention of pizzas and burgers, gets you a 1000-watt smile. Want to learn acting. Just look up to your kids.

So, enough of bashing the spouse and the kids. ‘I can think of some new proverbs which you will find hilarious.

All that glitters is not gold.

All that stinks is not poop. ( Evil thoughts of humans and the human species that don’t shower for days stink a lot. So do rotten eggs, cabbage and overflowing sewage).

Rome was not built in a day.

Romeos are born everyday.

A bird in hand is worth two in the bush.

A book in hand is worth several people chewing your brain.

A stitch in time saves time.

A stitch in your mouth saves energy spent on unnecessary arguments.

Make hay while the sun shines.

Make the Facebook post while the topic is hot.

How would you define sense?

Sense is the capacity for reasonable or sensible  thought or behaviour; it often refers to sound  judgement.

According to me, it can be classified into common sense and nonsense.

Common sense is when ‘we realize it’s futile to argue with an idiot who thinks he is a genius.

Nonsense is arguing with him or her to prove our point.

Unfortunately, ‘we lose our common sense during elections when we choose the candidate offering freebies rather than a humble visionary.

As far as nonsense is concerned, everything shown on TV or movies is definitely BS ( except for National Geographic, Discovery and Animal Planet).

Advice is the only thing in the world, available freely that no one wants to take but insists on offering. My humble request to those dishing out unsolicited advice is to kindly subscribe to or However, no one wants to discuss his or her contribution to be environmental friendly or support a noble cause. There are people who practice philanthropy anonymously, which is the most admirable and a perfect way of contributing towards the society.

There are some geniuses who will give two bananas to the monkeys, click the picture and post it on Facebook.

Well, That feels nice. I feel much better after taking out my frustration. Pardon me for the puns. After all, it was just for fun. 😝😜😉😄😄😄

Thank you so much for taking your precious time to visit my website. Hope you enjoyed reading my blogs. 😊😊

  1. Oh my goodness Aparna, you certainly shed some light on issues so many people deal with. The proverbs you have provided are spot-on. It seems like good common sense, decency, and respect are merely a memory these days, or simply ignored. Some folks are so crass, inconsiderate, and arrogant. Thanks for shedding this light on behavior and ideologies that’s selfish and quite frankly unacceptable. Have an amazing and beautiful day my friend! Hugs and smooches! 🤗💖😘💐😍

  2. Thank you so much, dear Kym. You are spot on with your observation. Exactly, dear friend. It’s important for us to be humble and not forget the fact that an airborne plane has to land on the earth before it exhausts its fuel. Have a wonderful week. ♥️♥️♥️♥️😊😊😊
