They Say, I Say

In Stories, secrets & dreams on June 29, 2013 at 10:00 am


My grandmother always says, “A watched pot never boils.” She says they say that. I always wonder, Who’s they? – like in the news they always refer to unknown sources. I say watch for a pot to boil and it will always happen. The water becomes hot after a time, so it will boil, whether you watch it or not. Or when you were a kid and you got yourself in trouble, to say, “Step on a crack, break your mama’s back.” She trips over your shoe you left out carelessly instead of putting it away, they you say mama broke her toe because of that silly saying. There are many more they say, too numerous to list. But I say, analyze them, put them in a reality context. You will see they are a bunch of crock.
