The Cucumber has Left the Salad

The Cucumber has Left the Salad

Today, I thought maybe a little laugh. The haiku horizons prompt is “fly”.

Discrete hand gesture.
Eyes twitch, silently pleading –

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 🙂

    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.

    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!

    *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…
