Wisdom Pearls

by

No one loves you when you're down and out. Especially when you're "down" at the nudie bar and "out" of one dollar bills.

Never kick a man when he's down. Unless you find him in bed with your wife, then you can stomp the crap out of him.

Stupid is as stupid do.

Be yourself. Unless you're a complete ass-hat, in which case you might want to be someone else.

Kill with kindness... or a hacksaw, whichever is convenient.

Self-deprecating humor is when you make fun of yourself. Self-decapitating humor is when you laugh your head off.

    It's been three years between the first one of these and the second. Come back in another three years for the third one.

    Christopher. Welcome back... been worried about you having not heard anything from you for quite a long time. Love the drabble, particularly the last one.🤣

    Thanks, Neville. Been busy and a little under the weather, which isn't a good combo. I appreciate the concern.

    Hear hear! Welcome back Christopher, good to have you drabbling again :) and glad you're okay.
    I like the first three, but the last three are sheer genius! Had me roaring. If I have to, I will wait three years...

    Thanks, Drew. Still having some complications but I'm doing okay.

    I made that self-decapitating joke about 20 years ago and it good a good laugh.

    Got a good laugh. I hate autocorrect.

    Thanks, Jeff.

    Is anyone else having trouble accessing Drablr? I had to download a browser other than Chrome in order to get to it today.

    Yes. Looks like the security certificate has expired. The site owner needs to get a new certificate. It's happened before. I'm using Chrome, and simply ignoring the warnings.

    It didn't give me the option to ignore it, but that's from my phone. Neville knows how to contact the owner of the site but I guess he hasn't been here in a couple of days.

    Aaaaaaaand... we're back online :)
    I really miss this site when it's down. I feel like I'm missing out on what you guys are posting, which is stupid and illogical, I know, but hey! :)

    I emailed Michael yesterday and he’s now sorted it. He had an apartment move and forgot about renewing the certificate for the site.

    Doh!
    Not to worry, Michael does a great job hosting this site, very much appreciated :)
