28 Days of Writing - One Bite

1101101_

Oh dear.  Those bits don't even make one byte.  One bit short of a byte.

A few bricks short of a load.

A taco short of a combo platter.

The elevator never makes it to the top floor.

One piece short of a jigsaw puzzle.

A deck with an extra joker.

Well, ok, so I just made some of those up but they fit with living with Evil Twin.


One Bite = False:
  • Can I have just ONE bite of that cake you're having?
  • I'll just have ONE of those cute little candies.
  • I'll just have ONE slice of that delicious sourdough bread.
  • I"ll have ONE small chunk of that yummy Cheddar.

I'm sure none of you ever took a bite out of each piece of candy in the box putting the half-eaten piece back in its slot.  Oops.

Stop by and visit Nicky.  She may or may not bite.

In Canada, one of our favourites is a fry short of a poutine. Okay, maybe it's one of my favourites

Me? Take one bite out of each candy in the box? Yep. Busted! :)

Katherine said...

Oh my goodness I want to eat ALL of that!!!

Paula Wooters said...

I just knew this prompt was going to leave me hungry all day! Dang it all!

"A taco short of a combo platter." -- HA! I've never heard that one before!

Ziva said...

Me, I take a bite out of a candy, decide if I like it or not, and if I don't, I feed the other half to M. Problem solved!

Rob-bear said...

And how many times has Oreo taken a bite out of you?

Maybe we could try one bite short of a cat fight?

Blessings and Bear hugs!

One taco short of a combo platter? Hilarious! Did you make that up? I have never heard it!

Linda Medrano said...

Darlin, you need 8 bits to make a bite and you can do a lot with a bite as you know. Go get some more bits!

Chris said...

And here I am thinking of that owl in the old Tootsie Pop commercial.

One . . .twoooo . . . three.

Crunch!

Linda said...

You know you can't eat just one bite...unless it's liver.

ReformingGeek said...

@Noname - Hm...I've never heard of that one.

@jayne - Aha! I knew it was you.

@Katherine - Oops. I'd better hide the candy.

@Paula - Got cheese?

@meleah - I saw it on Urban Dictionary and thought it fit very well for the south.

@Ziva - I need M to come here.

@Rob - Well, um, he takes love bites. ;)

@laughingmom - I know. It's preposterous.

@Malisa - I saw it on Urban Dictionary. LOL

@Linda M - My bit bucket is full.

@Chris - Yum, tootsie rolls!

@Linda - I don't think I could eat even one bit or bite of liver.

"She may or may not bite"

Really, Reffie! You don't want to give people the wrong impression of me! ;-)

MsDarkstar said...

Oh, c'mon... just one bite... it's only wafer thin...

KZ said...

I'm fascinated by that "byte" game you play in the opener of your post. I have a vague idea about bytes being zeroes and ones, but I don't know how to read that string of numbers you put up there. Does it have to do with paired numbers? I guess this is something I should be looking up now.

ReformingGeek said...

@Nicky - I'm sure you taste good.

@MsDarkstar - Wafer thin would probably be a good thing.

@KZ - What I posted was intended to point out that there are only 7 bits instead of 8, which would be a byte. Yes, the ones and zeroes can be "read" but it's been awhile since I knew the details.
