You're only as...


I heard a great saying today:

"You are only as happy as your unhappiest child."

Such a simple statement, but so true!  People, especially children, have a great way of sharing misery...

I am glad to say that all of my children seem to be very happy right now...

So, hat is your favourite "You are only as..." saying?

How about:

"You are only as old as the woman you feel."
 
Just a way for dirty old men to justify themselves, really...

"You are only as good as your last record."

I first heard that in an old song by Bachman Turner Overdrive - and very true, IMO.

"You are only as sick as your secrets."


How true...

"You are only as good as your blog."
Fire away, then!

Ouch, only as good as your blog. No way. You are way better than that!! Ha Ha. Seriously, I think we are all so much more than the writing we do in our blogs.

I like your last saying; Where else we can find a blog maintained by a REAL zombie? Har har har.

The first one is so true, and completely explains the miserable mood I am in at the moment!

How 'bout...You're only as young as your last girlfriend?

Darn it, I can't think of any other "You're only" line! My favourite saying is - what's for you, won't go past you - will that do?

"You're only as fat as your pants"????? Makes me laugh cuz I see a lot of people squished into size 10's when they need to be in 20's - and how unhappy are they in those pants??? - I write this as I sit in my elastic top shorts : )

Rock Chef said...

Claire - A great point! And I am sure that your shorts are the right size, elastic or not.

Teresa said...

A man after my own heart. You would like my son in law too. a heavy rock guitar player, dreadful but he doesn't care!

Rock Chef said...

Teresa - I don't think any of us do!

Grumpy Old Ken - Hi! Guitar playing is all about enjoying yourself - if you are good enough to entertain yourself that is all that really matters.
