Today, I thought maybe a little laugh. The haiku horizons prompt is “fly”.
Discrete hand gesture.
Eyes twitch, silently pleading –
YOUR FLY IS UNDONE!
What’s your favorite way to discretely tell someone that their barn door is open and the horse is escaping?

I always make some stupid joke. My husband does this pretty often. Why do I always notice? Ha.
I say something like: “Honey, let me know how everyone at works feels about your wiener today , OK?”
I also came here for a salad recipe. I was most pleasantly surprised 🙂
Sorry you missed out on the salad recipe – but that’s the best thing I’ve read today. I’m going to use that the next time Hubs heads into work.
nice one ! I ponder a lot , is it the fault of the barn door being open or is the horse always trying to escpe ¿
LOL. Likely a mixture of both!
Maybe , the horse is hungry as there is only dried straw in the barn , and behold the grass is so green on the other side of the fence ! 😉
The grass always looks greener over there.
And the barn door is always locked by the owner ….
Loved it! I also breeched this subject with my haiku.
You did! I think we were the only ones.
Great minds think alike. Lol!
I guess the eye gesture would be the best option…
Awesome Haiku 🙂
Ha! I don’t have a funny way. I always feel as embarrassed as them. But, you have to tell them.
Yes you do. Because you’d want them to tell you…
Now that is the first time I’ve heard that one… 🙂
hawww!!! good one 🙂
Haha never heard that one. I clicked on the link thinking this was going to be a salad recipe. This is hilarious I might say “The snake is out of the cage”
Haha! That’s a good one too!
We use to say as kids XYZ PDQ which means examine your zipper, pretty darn quick. Lol
Haha. Hadn’t heard that one!
I’ve heard people use the XYZ (examine your zipper) but I’m don’t want to be misunderstood when it comes to this. I tell people straight out, but softly.
Yes…you do have to be a bit gentle, don’t you.
For some reason, I do this ALL THE TIME. I’m not normally that forgetful about things, but I always seem to leave my fly down… I almost always appreciate being told!
I try not to wear pants with zippers. And I’m even more dreadful at remembering when I have a belt.
Very good. Your haiku made me chuckle.
Glad to hear it.
*snorks* I have NO idea. When it used to happen to Husby (more often than you’d care to imagine) I’d usually just tell him, if it was just the two of us. I’d forgotten he was so rubbish at remembering to zip up…
Haha. My husband too.
That’s a good question. I guess the eye gesture would be my pick too!
LOL. Good choice!
