    PROVERBS FROM VIRGINIA FIRST GRADERS

    A first grade teacher collected well-known proverbs.
    She had twenty-five students in her class, and she presented each
    child in her class the first half of a proverb and asked each of them to come
    up with the remainder of the proverb.
    It's hard to believe these were actually done by first-graders.
    Their insight may surprise you. While reading these, keep in
    mind that these are first-graders..... 6-year-olds, because the last one
    is classic!

    1. Better to be safe than ......................punch a 5th grader.
    2. Strike while the ......bug is close.
    3. It's always darkest before ......Daylight Saving Time.
    4. Never underestimate the power of .....termites.
    5. You can lead a horse to water but .....how?
    6. Don't bite the hand that .......................looks dirty.
    7. No news is .....impossible.
    8. A miss is as good as a ...Mr.
    9. You can't teach an old dog new...math.
    10. If you lie down with dogs, you'll ......stink in the morning.
    11. Love all, trust .....me.
    12. The pen is mightier than the....pigs.
    13. An idle mind is ...........................the best way to relax.
    14. Where there's smoke there's ....pollution.
    15. Happy the bride who ...................gets all the presents.
    16. A penny saved is ..........................not much.
    17. Two's company, three's ...............the Musketeers.
    18. Don't put off till tomorrow what ....you put on to go to bed.
    19. Laugh and the whole world laughs with you, cry and .......you have
    to blow your nose.
    20. There are none so blind as .....Stevie Wonder.
    21. Children should be seen and not .....spanked or grounded.
    22. If at first you don't succeed ......get new batteries.
    23. You get out of something only what you ......see in the picture
    on the box.
    24. When the blind leadeth the blind .....get out of the way.

    And the WINNER and last one!

    25. Better late than ............................pregnant

    And then there's the one from my college yearbook, a couple of millennia ago, which'll probably have the same effect on you now as it did on us back then. Specifically, lying awake all night wondering "Now what the heck did that mean?"

    No matter how high a bird flies, you can always break a window with a hammer.

    ;) :D
