Etiquette Flub 101

Faux Pas:  ~mistaking a foe for a fox and hoping for a pass (grace). For more chuckles see ~Social Blunders, past and present. Also, synonyms that rhyme with ‘riot in a teacup.’ Or: “Know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em, know when to walk away.”


Life lesson learned for this or any day

When entangled in a faux pas, silence your say.

Attempted apologies/explanations to stay


surely will worsen it all anyway.

You know a firestorm is coming astray

Remove yourself and get out of the way.


Queen of Hearts ordered, “Off with the head!”

To be sure, there was nothing more to be said.


Go ask Alice when she was very small,

Queen of Hearts ten meters tall.

Life lesson well learned, as I recall.


(Proven true again and again,

and sure to see more to my chagrin).

Ain’t life funny? Meaning peculiar, not Ha Ha.

When does it end? At the final hurrah!



A gentle answer turns aside wrath ~prov. 15.1

Eclectic in renderings. Prose and poetry, rhyme, free verse, and graphics. I have but One interest with manifold interests emanating from that One. More info available in 'About Me' in my 'Hiding in Plain Site.' There is a small square box with three little dots inside, on the upper right hand side of every blog posted page,at the right side of title banner. Click on those dots to take you to a "hidden" site page with more info provided by me, including "follow" button and "About me." (I didn't design this.It came as-is). Also, WP has a mandatory banner at the bottom of the screen about privacy and cookies policy that blocks the visibility of a "follow" button that pops up under a "close and accept' of the privacy agreement. You must click the 'close and accept' to see the follow button. Things are becoming more complicated to navigation with hidden activations and complex instructions.
