Today’s Daily Bitch has a different ending for “out of the frying pan into the fire.”
It still means the same thing: going to a worse situation when trying to better your current one.
No matter how we phrase it, that’s a fear that can worry us or even paralyze us about taking action — maybe I should stay in this frying pan because if I move, it might get worse!
For example, we stayed with a malfunctioning dishwasher for months (Michael had to bail out the non-draining water every day!) and now that we finally got a new one (delivered yesterday), I’m thinking we were afraid we might be going out of the frying pan into the fire, imagining things like “What if the new one doesn’t work?” “What if the installation people scare Harley so much he gets sick?” and other fire-y thoughts. Instead, now our frying pans can go into a dishwasher that was installed easily and works great. And Harley, as you can see, is neither in a frying pan nor a fire.
Now it’s time to move out of the frying pan …
… into the rest of the images for today.
Because we’re focusing on frying pans and fires today, you might think that “Burns Supper” means something other than this:
Happy Burns Supper Day and because it’s also National Opposite Day, maybe I’ll assume that I’m going out of the frying pan into BETTER situations today.
Here’s what I find when I search for “out of the frying pan” on YouTube.
Thanks to all who accompany me as I go out of the frying pan into other places every day, including YOU!
I’m glad to hear Michael no longer has to bail out and Harley is still a happy cat, Ann.
