Aphorisms

AN APHORISM:

A SHORT, POINTED SENTENCE THAT EXPRESSES A WISE, OR CLEVER OBSERVATION OR A GENERAL TRUTH.

 DSC_31511. The nicest thing about the future is…that it always starts tomorrow.

8. Why is it that at class reunions…you feel younger than everyone else looks?

9. Scratch a cat (or dog)…and you will have a permanent job.

10. No one has more driving ambition than the teenage boy (or girl)…who wants to buy a car.

11. There are no new sins…the old ones just get more publicity.

16. The trouble with bucket seats is that…not everybody has the same size bucket.

17. Do you realize that, in about 40 years…we’ll have thousands of old ladies running around with tattoos?  (And rap music will be the Golden Oldies!)
