It seems to be the talk of the blogger-town (should I say WordPress blogger town?) these days (yayy), which is AMAZING because it just makes my job a lot easier😂
Oh sorry. That’s not how you start a conversation. Hello ya’ll! What’s crackin’? 😁 Today I have a nice little announcement to make, (if you didn’t know about it), that a new collaborative blog has been launched this week! *crowd cheers*🎊
Well, *sighs*, the first thought that’s pushing it’s way among all the other things bubbling inside me is, “Wow. What a lame title😂❤” But well, I do have loads of things to say and I’m fed up of rethinking this. Not just once or twice but over and over, and yet I can’t seem to come to a conclusion. ~I’m feeling quite bitter so please don’t mind the sarcasm, if and when it comes out unintentionally 😅🤷♀️. But if you were looking for an actual “Chat” here – as in a conversation with um… 2 or more people🤔 – let me tell you that this website doesn’t support that option and it’s going to be mainly me who is about to do the talking.🤷♀️ Ha. *The penny drops* (The kind and generous me, ofcourse says you are more than welcome to comment🤓)
Hey hey hey! How are you? 🤗 How are you dealing with the back-to-normal-but-nothing’s-actually-normal phase of 2020?
I, for one have been facing an intense writer’s block, goodness knows why. (serves me right). And just um…moving around like a zombie….just watching all the work pile up.😶
The One useful thing I’ve been doing is catch up with all your blogs lately, something which I haven’t been able to do for a while and now I’m feeling satisfied🤗 (Kinda? Not yet done reading, so look out for a stalker!👀)
Now that I’ve said that 😂, rambling’s apart, today we have a guest!! And she’s here for another spicy game on my blog yayy!! *crowd cheers*
I actually have no idea how to begin this post (oopsie daisy! *sticks out tongue*)😬, but I’d like to say that often we come across “wise sayings” or proverbs that we most often do not agree with. It was only on a chance encounter did I realize that not all we come across today, is the original version.
Or rather, not all that was said a million years ago has to be true today. Times change and so do our lifestyles and our ideals.✌
I came across these first on Tumblr (it’s such a mind blowing place *whoa* ) and immediately the possible existence of it all, caught my attention. It was a bloody revelation people!⭐🌟
There is More to Proverbs Than You Think!
Infact as a preamble, I’d like to say that many of our “so called traditional practices”, the age-old sayings, actually stemmed from wisepeople who actually did know what they were talking about and are indeed worth quoting or holding onto had they not undergone a change while travelling through the society; probably by people who were none the wiser.😶
( Hearing about the wisdom of the people of the yesteryears might not be new to many of you.😅 But often I end up thinking that people who crafted societal rules are often patriarchs who had nothing better to do.😅 (WHICH, is also true🤷♀️)
Here are 6 super common proverbs/ phrases that were originally NOT what you thought they were..
1. Curiosity killed the cat
Nah. The actual version ?
Curiosity killed the cat but satisfaction brought it back.
Okayyy. Whaaaaattt.😱😱😂And even better, for the first time in my life, not ONE, but 8 (EIGHT!!!) of my posts crossed 100 likes!!!!!!
Which I was absolutely sure wasn’t going to happen in a Zillion years.
😳😳 *tries to calm down*
*takes a deep breath*
Wait. First of all I’m going to stop pretending that the numbers aren’t a deal to me, because they SO bloody mean EVERYTHING to me right now.😇
I’m over the moon guys!! *waves from the moon*
Honestly, when I first started I was sure that reaching 100 subscribers was going to be a humongous deal. And then againn, after my 100 year hiatus, I thought getting about 10 people odd to notice me was hardly going to happen either😅
~Now 100+ likes on a post is making me faaainttt~
(Sorry for confusing you with the 10s and 100s😂✌)
And to think it has just been 2 months since I came back. And I distinctly remember havin 250 followers then, gaining 250+ subscribers in 2 months is super UNBELIEVABLE for me.
