What is Snip-Its?
This is the real Snip-its:
You know those yellow "sticky notes" that we all use to jot down notes and reminders? Or the typical 3 by 5 index
cards? We use them all the time -- placing them in books, stuffing them into shirt pockets, wallets, tacking them to computer screens, placing them on
telephones, filing them in a box, etc.
What I am calling a Snip-it, which oddly is remarkably similar, but different.
Those bits and pieces of flotsom and jestsom, that hang around for absolutely no purpose in your brain.
When I think of my brain, many of the really smarty pants people in here would say "you see a vast and empty plain".
Tucked off in a corner are piles of Snip-its. I am fond of mine and take them out now and then to mull as it were. They always make me smile or
laugh, usually because they make no sense.
It may be a poem, I posted one on here called "The Date", did not intentionally memorize it, it just stuck.
Here are a few more examples to get you started: Snip-it from a book "they were cinders on the hearthstone of love".
Snip-it from a song: "she thinks that happiness is a mat that sits in her doorway"
Something someone once said to me: "do these stairs go down?"
What are some of your snip-its?
