Understood #1LinerWeds

My family doesn’t just have a supposedly funny saying for every occasion, they have one for pretty much every non-occasion. I say “supposedly funny”, because there are only so many times you can be tag-teamed with, “She’s such a wit!” “Well, you’re half right.” before it isn’t particularly funny anymore.

ANYWAY, one of the non-occasions of which I speak is when somebody explains something clearly. Then you say (if you’re my grandfather):

I see, said the blind man, as he picked up his hammer and saw.

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: Someone must explain something.



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.

    If I could go back in time, I’d want to have dinner with your grandfather.

    My mother loved that line (“I see said the blind man…”) and I remember her saying it on several occasions. I wonder what its origin is? Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

      -grin- the one I heard was ‘We shall see,” said the blind man. It’s still one of my favourites. 😀

      I tried to track it down, and it seems to be a mishmash of several things, not just one.
