I was telling hub-a-dub that I’m not sure if I’m going to be able to finish this entire novel by the end of the month. (I’m sure I’ll be able to hit 50,000, since I just did (sub-parentheses parenthesis HOLLA!), but I’m not sure if I’ll finish the actual full manuscript, which should be around 80,000.) He said, “Well, don’t count your chickens before they hatch.”
I was like… “Uhh. I’m not. That’s what I’m saying.”
He blinked at me and said, “Oh. I mean, don’t knock your chickens before they hatch.”
Lolz. So, what he’s saying, is that I shouldn’t knock my chickens.
Which would make this entirely out of the question:
me: Knock knock.
my chickens: Who’s there?
my chickens: Chickengoes who?
me: No! Owls go who. Chickens go Bck-cawk! Bawk, bawk bawk bawk!
So I won’t. Consider my eggs uncounted and my chickens unknocked. (But… I’m afraid I might not finish but I really want to and I think I can.)Share this:
