One song I remember has a title that’s a one-liner in and of itself:
You May Be Fast, But You Won’t Last, Because Your Mama’s Gonna Slow You Down.
But the line from the song that’s my one-liner for this week is one of “Mama”‘s methods of slowing him down. It’s also a threat we used to make to each other when I was a kid, albeit without the rhyme:
I’m gonna get a pail of water cold as ice, dunk your head in it three times, and only pull it out twice.
As they say in England, be told.
This post is part of Linda G. Hills 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: What would make you (or your main character) want to carry out that threat?
