Magpie 27


A plumber, looking at this week’s prompt, might say to himself: “A coupling, with elbows.”
But have we not all…
Been there,
Done that?

Plumbers do it best?

Brigid said...

Clever words, is that why a plumber always needs a mate?

Clever and concise!

Carrie Burtt said...

Berowne I love it...short and sweet and so true.

lol I like this one, definitely short and sweet.

Tumblewords: said...

Yes! Coupling with elbows is the best route.

Helen said...

An errant elbow, a misplaced knee, awkwardly bumping noses ... yes we have all been there.

The Bug said...

I don't know - that sounds dangerous to me (speaking as one-half of the world's clumsiest known couple).

ds said...

Ha ha! Very clever.

Marilyn said...

Brigid, jinksy, Carrie Burtt, redprisma, Tumblewords, Helen, The Bug, ds and Marilyn --glad you agree it's occasionally "good to have a fun magpie read."

Berowne said...

My thanks to Leo, Patience, Greyscale, willow, Kristen, Mme deF and Claudia for a Magpie week I've really enjoyed.

Claudia said...

regarding your question about black forest cake..it's just too much cream in there for my taste...but all the visitors we have from overseas want to try it...and you speak german? warum nicht?

Fred Miller said...

It's a coupling all right, with a sweat joint. In my case, there's a reducer involved.

The Fred Effect

Berowne said...

"...and you speak german? warum nicht?"
Claudia, I raise my glass of Schwarzwaelder Kirsch and say -- Willkommen!

CatLadyLarew said...
