Fractured Cliché #11

Fall is just around the corner. For me, summer went by way too fast and spring seems like a distant memory. As beautiful as fall is, I love spring and summer the most: the sounds of birds and cicadas, warm temperatures and sunshine, and smells of fresh air, rain and flowers. Spring brings the promise of new life and summer sustains it. The following fractured clichés are devoted to these beautiful seasons.

Fractured Cliché: Wake up and smell the roses

Correct Cliché: Wake up and smell the coffee

Fractured Cliché: Stop and smell the coffee

Correct Cliché: Stop and smell the roses

Technically, I really do wake up and smell the roses.  When the weather’s nice, I sleep with my windows open and the roses are directly outside.  There’s no excuse for the second fractured cliché though because I don’t drink coffee and therefore can rarely, if ever, stop and smell it.

May the farce be with you!

Your IFF,


This Bud's for you

  1. Sorry your spring and summer have gone and are good memories for you to make it through the fall and winter!!! I am excited about getting warm spring and summer…. love Christmas shopping in shorts!!!! Do not buy chocolate…. it melts… ha

  2. Christmas shopping in shorts sounds much better than winter coats! I’m glad we still have warm days ahead. I’m definitely not ready for the cold yet.
