Quick thought...

Sometime people say quotes without thinking about what they actually mean. It doesn't annoy me or anything, I just find it funny. I've been trying to think of more examples but the best I have is 2.

Firstly, "Sticks and stones may break your bones but words will never hurt you". I remember a teacher saying that to me when I was little and some girls were picking on me and even though I was young still being like what on earth is she talking about?? To further prove my point that this is a lame saying I can bet that everyone can remember someone saying something awful to them, even from school.

Next saying, "I slept like a baby". Oh so you woke up every hour or so crying and screaming for no reason? And yes before you all comment I do know that the saying is actually about sleeping with no worries and all that but seriously, I'd rather sleep well than sleep like a baby!

That's all for now. I'll write more later xx

This is gonna be good Jo! Actually an improvement on the sticks snd stones saying is '.....but words will last forever!' Coz, without outside help, sometimes they can. :)
