A Date with Mr. Idiom

smirky reptilian pickup line
"Penny for your thoughts?"
a rebuttal in his native tongue
"Let's not beat around the bush.
You're barking up the wrong tree, buddy."
Monocle falls at the drop of a hat
"My dear, why not give me the benefit of the doubt?
Don't judge a book by it's cover.
Every cloud has a silver lining."
Nails on a chalkboard.
I turn on a dime so we can see eye to eye.
"To make a long story short
and kill two birds with one stone,
Time with me would cost you an arm an a leg.
I'll burn the midnight oil to avoid you like the plague.
You're a wolf in sheep's clothing.
There's a method to my madness.
I wore plaid pants to say "I do" to Mr. Unorthodox
And he carries a loaded hot glue gun
that helps me piece together something viscid
and burgeoning
and pulchritudinous
So go take the bull by the horns
Don't give up your day job.
Go cut corners with someone else.
Here's a taste of your own medicine.
Curiosity resurrected this cat."

"Artists of all disciplines must be willing to go into the dark, let go control, be surprised." - Madeleine L' Engle

"It’s true that moral guidance and counsel need to be given,
but how you say it and to whom you say it are as important as what you say."
