How Crazy Is He? #1LinerWeds

When I was young and worked in an office, one of my co-workers gave me an expression I’ve used ever since:

He’s crazier’n a tree full of hoot-owls.

I don’t know what makes hoot-owls particularly crazy, or why the craziness increases with numbers, but it feels right, so I use it. That’s how good expressions do.

This post is part of Linda G. Hill’s weekly blog hop, One-Liner Wednesday. If you have a one-liner or just like them, follow the link.

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Write about a tree full of hoot-owls.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
