A body that keeps minutes and wastes hours.

An insect that makes you like flies better.

Someone who is usually me-deep in conversation.

A no-it-all.

A story you tell to one person at a time.

A bunch of bones with the person scraped off.

The pain that drives you to extraction.

One of the greatest labor saving devices of today.

An honest opinion openly expressed.

Aah . . . that’s better!

These aren’t bad at all. I especially like the ones for skeleton and tomorrow. Some of those chain email things turn out to be pretty funny.

nrhatch - September 5, 2015

And that’s no bunk! :mrgreen:

I’ll pop around later to see what’s what at BunKaryudo.

BunKaryudo - September 5, 2015

I look forward to it! You’ll be very welcome! ๐Ÿ˜€

nrhatch - September 5, 2015

You really hit the ground running with your very first post!

2. Hariod Brawn - September 5, 2015

‘Secret’ – made me laugh; how true!

nrhatch - September 5, 2015

Yes! Mum’s the word.

3. Pix Under the Oaks - September 5, 2015

Good Morning, Nancy! I enjoyed your word play post!!! Hope you and BFF have a nice Saturday!

nrhatch - September 5, 2015

Thanks, Pix. Words can be great fun ~ especially with word smiths twisting them about.

I’m taking it easy today . . . and no laboring on Labor Day!

4. Don - September 5, 2015

Great stuff Nancy. So descriptive and good.

nrhatch - September 5, 2015

To words! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

5. kateshrewsday - September 5, 2015

Ha. I love the committee. Ain’t that the truth.

nrhatch - September 5, 2015

Yes. I planned to do more with this post . . . but I kept putting it off until “tomorrow.” ๐Ÿ˜›

6. Kate Crimmins - September 5, 2015

Most of these are too true.

nrhatch - September 5, 2015

Any that didn’t strike a chord with me got excised before posting.

7. Eileen - September 5, 2015

Good laugh on a challenging morning. Thanks

nrhatch - September 5, 2015

Yes! A sense of humor can be a real life saver, especially on challenging mornings!

โ€œA person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs. Itโ€™s jolted by every pebble on the road.โ€
~ Henry Ward Beecher

โ€œA well-developed sense of humor is the pole that adds balance to your steps as you walk the tightrope of life.โ€
~ William Arthur Ward

8. Patricia - September 5, 2015

What fun. The skeleton one is too funny and I am the poster child for tomorrow.

nrhatch - September 5, 2015

Me too! To tomorrow . . .

9. Rajagopal - September 5, 2015

All cheeky definitions, nancy; the one on yawn is right on the ball. There is another one on committee, defined as a group of people, who, individually cannot do anything but collectively decide that nothing can be done…best wishes.

nrhatch - September 5, 2015

Love it! Thanks for a FUN share.

10. Carol Ferenc - September 5, 2015

So true – and funny, too!!

nrhatch - September 6, 2015

Glad you enjoyed, Carol. To fun puns!

11. Val Boyko - September 5, 2015

Good stuff Nancy … tomorrow is a favorite of mine ๐Ÿ˜‰

nrhatch - September 6, 2015

“Tomorrow” is the perfect repository for stuff that we aren’t quite ready to tackle.

Val Boyko - September 6, 2015

Tomorrow, I must pack. No seriously!

nrhatch - September 6, 2015

Haha! I find unpacking easier than packing.

12. Jill Weatherholt - September 5, 2015

My friends refer to me as, “the vault.” A secret told to me, never escapes my lips. Happy Weekend!

nrhatch - September 6, 2015

I’m the same, Jill. The principles behind Attorney-Client Privilege followed me when I left the practice of law ~> “loose lips sink ships.”

Hope your writing/editing is on target for launch!

Jill Weatherholt - September 6, 2015

I trying, Nancy! Thanks!

13. Tammy - September 6, 2015

I am definitely guilty of the YAWN during COMMITTEE.

nrhatch - September 6, 2015

Moi aussi!

14. livelytwist - September 6, 2015

Hahaha! Love them all, but committee has to be my favorite right now as I’ve methodically extracted myself from a few of them. ๐Ÿ™‚
Whoever came up with these is brilliant.
Brilliant: the ability to explain ‘complex’ things in a way that makes everyone nod their heads!

nrhatch - September 6, 2015

Yay! Glad you enjoyed. And I’m nodding my head at your last observation.

15. Behind the Story - September 6, 2015

Funny and so true. Tomorrow really is an excellent labor-saving device. I’ve never believed in all-nighters. When it’s time to go to bed, I just save all that labor for tomorrow. I’m lucky I’m usually able to do so.

nrhatch - September 6, 2015

Same here, Nicki. Even when I had the stamina to pull all nighters, I rarely bothered to burn the midnight oil.

I found a good night’s sleep more profitable to all concerned.

16. Tiny - September 6, 2015

These are all excellent Nancy. And useful. My fav is the definition for tomorrow. I’ll put it in good use.

nrhatch - September 6, 2015

Excellent! That seems to be a favorite of many in the thread.

17. Debra - September 8, 2015

Great definitions! Love “skeleton”–bones with the person scraped off? Kind of awful and brilliant all in one. ๐Ÿ™‚

nrhatch - September 8, 2015

When I saw that definition, it reminded me of the Mummy movies ~> when scarab beetles poured out of a coffin and picked the bones clean. “Waste not, want not.”

18. Barb - September 9, 2015

Isn’t it the truth about flies? They make us so glad we’re not in a swamp with mosquitoes…and that’s about it. Love these and hope I can remember them long enough to work into a conversation.

nrhatch - September 9, 2015

Maybe you can commit them to memory TOMORROW. ๐Ÿ˜›

19. jannatwrites - November 17, 2015

Ah, the real definitions they don’t put in the dictionary ๐Ÿ™‚

nrhatch - November 17, 2015

Yes! Expanding our vocabulary with funny punnies.
