There is a small church by our house that puts those quaint little sayings on their church sign. The recent saying was "Nothing runs the truth like stretching it." Huh? Every time I drove by that little church with it's little sign, I would think "I still don't get it. What does that mean?"
Then, one day I was stopped at the light by that little church and there were enough cars ahead of me that I was right by that sign. I read it again. "Nothing RUINS the truth like stretching it." Oh, now I get it! I totally was missing the "I" in "ruins" and was reading it as "runs." NOW it makes sense. Yes indeed, I think I should start wearing my glasses more often!
