Mr. Shife's March Madness 2016 - Day 14

It's going to be a busy week.
How busy, you ask?
I don't think I will end up going nuts like Charlie from "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia"

or will be quite as busy as a one-armed bus driver with crabs but we got some stuff happening.
Besides the regular hustle and bustle of a normal week at the Shifley hacienda, we also have a birthday to celebrate on Thursday and I have my ear surgery on Friday.
More details on those events later.
But this got me to thinking.
Do you enjoy idioms?
I do.
The one I used up top about the bus driver is one of my favorites about being busy.
Do you have one?
You can be as busy as a bee or a busy beaver, but I need something a little more vulgar.
There's busier than a one-legged man in an ass-kicking contest.
I have also heard being busier than a a three-legged cat trying to bury a turd on a marble floor.
Oh you would like some more.
Okie dokie.
I’m busier than a one-armed man hanging wall paper.
I’m busier than a one-legged grass hopper in a jumping contest.
I’m busier than a one-eyed cat watching two mouse holes.
I’m busier than a gopher on a golf course.
I’m busier than mustard trying to ketchup.
I’m busier than a centipede at a toe counting contest.
I’m busier than a one-toothed man in a corn-on-the-cob eating contest.
I’m busier than a mosquito at a nudist colony.
I’m busier than a cobra at a mongoose convention.

I’m busier than a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs.

That's all folks.
Thanks for stopping by. Talk to you tomorrow. 

I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream. 


  1. I love these and thanks for sharing them. I believe that last one is a Mark Twain quote, and it goes: As nervous as a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs.

  2. 'I’m busier than mustard trying to ketchup' ... I like that one.
