Those little sayings that help A LOT!

I am 33 years old and I still, quite frequently, use "Righty Tighty, Lefty Loosey". I used it today. I was taking down the tree and our stand has 4 twisty screw-type of things that hold the trunk in place. I got down on my hands and knees and recited the saying before proceeding. I do it with screws, with garden hoses, with anything that turns.

I have two acquaintances, both named Jessica. One goes by Jessie, the other just Jess. The way I remember who is who...Jessie has a son. Extra letters, extra person. Jess has a son now too, but I think I got it down! :)

I know there are tons of these little sayings for grammar too. I could only think of a couple: "I before E, unless after C". But I don't think that one quite works all the time. And "Your Principal is your Pal".

Got any that you use frequently, for grammar or other things??? Please share!!!


  1. I'm so glad I'm not the only adult that has to do the righty tighty for things...Love sayings! They make life so much easier. And more rhymey.

  2. .... change the y to i and and es .... ella is learning that in school right now .... hope you're back in the swing of things after vaca and holidays!
