You're only young once, but you can stay immature for a lifetime.

Tomorrow is a mystery,  yesterday is history.

Today is a gift, thats why they call it the present.

Acting the rubber pig.

MrsGarden
Kef ? Is that the same as acting the goat?
KEF

MrsG, not really sure. Acting goat I always thought meant being deliberately stubborn and awkward, or is it? I think we say it when someone is acting silly.

The rubber pig was something my friend used to say and it was usually when someone was doing something and making a right mess off it..meaning you are as much use as a rubber pig, which I took to mean no use at all. It was the way she said it that made it so funny.

Has anyone else heard that one?

MrsGarden
Thanks kef - making a pigs ear of it.

Saw your quote on the other thread Kef, 

But sometimes its better the devil you know.  

He who laughs last laughs longest

Goes in one ear and out the other.

It's better to keep quiet and give the impression that you're stupid than to say something and remove all doubt.
