THE LAST SHIRT HAS NO POCKETS

Still sitting in my golden cage,  jogging from computer to TV, and of course the telephone and also sometimes into the kitchen, my world is rather limited and mostly virtual.

I never was a Facebook fan and rarely published something, but now I started to read the comments and there you learn a lot. Hiding behind their screen lots of people become vulgar, aggressive, and insulting. For everything and nothing. Others are very helpful and offer their services. Very interesting to read how people become even worse when they are locked in.

I am getting nervous because of the house sale which is normally sold and the apartment which I choose and I should normally get. But as nobody knows when everybody is allowed to work again normally, we are all stuck. Paperwork can be done via internet which is a great help.

To get to the point of this prompt, I always remember a proverb my aunt used to say when she had to pay a big amount of money and that was

THE LAST SHIRT HAS NO POCKETS

Which is very true. Now that we have time to think about everything and see the world in another way, maybe not all of us but certainly a lot, I think I will keep this in my mind as an advice to follow and enjoy life as much as I can ! This is a truth which will never age !

It's hard to see the end of this thing at the moment. Yes Facebook can be a very toxic place at times.

I have snoozed most of the 'friends' if they post political or nonsense. I just can't stand it on a daily basis and it's always somebody else's fault. Nope, not for me. I prefer flowers and kitties.

Sadly Facebook can be a very unpleasant place to be at times. Hopefully you will be able to move soon. Take care.

I've never heard that proverb but it makes a lot of sense.

I know a different version of that proverb " There are no pockets in a shroud". So I am busy spending my money online shopping. Hope your house sale completes soon and your apartment is waiting for you.

As Linen and Royals said. Both mean the same thing, I guess, but the problem is you never know if you are wearing your last shirt.
