Finally losing it

In trying to say something to John, I've just come out with this bewildering aphorism: "let him who is without stone cast the first greenhouse".

Now, I know what I meant, but I doubt whether anyone else would, and I've decided that the last miserable wits are finally trickling out of my poor wretched head. Worrying isn't it? Well, it certainly worries me.

Is this kind of thing happening to anyone else?

  1. Love it! I totally understand your meaning. You could start a fashion of inverted sayings.

  2. Sounds fine to me. I'm sitting here stoned in my glasshouse.

    1. Brilliant idea! A bit long, though?

    2. No worse than for example
      'The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared' ;)

    3. True. But not so easy to remember. Even I can't remember it!

    1. Maggie, delete your comment or learn Latin. I bet a pound to a penny what I writ was a non sekwiture.

    2. Maggie, thank you for your comment. And ignore Adrian. His is classic attention-seeking behaviour.
