Heard At Church This Past Weekend #1LinerWeds

If it ain’t hurtin’, it ain’t workin’!

Saturday evening Mass at our parish brings out a lot of us who are on canes and walkers, it seems. We were getting ready to leave on Saturday and a guy we kind of know walked past us on a cane and said, “Man, getting old sucks.”

“Yeah, but it beats the alternative,” I said.

“You’re right,” he said. “I don’t even mind the pain anymore. Way I see it, if it ain’t hurtin’, it ain’t workin’!”

Thus we have today’s one-liner. It’s a good thing to remember. The stroke taught me the value of life, and never to take anything (your life, your health, etc.) for granted. Happy Thanksgiving!


One-Liner Wednesday is brought to you by Linda Hill and this station.

  1. I am at the age where I can appreciate this one liner. Have a great Thanksgiving, John, and our best wishes to Mary. Remember how Jack Christian used to always cook the turkey in a Weber grill?


    1. I’ll never forget. The year he died, I tried it, and the results were less satisfactory. We ended up putting it in the oven. It was fine after that, but it was the last time I tried. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.
