I Need a Scissor

“Where’s the scissor?”

“I don’t know, why?”

“I needed it to cut the thread; the zipper on my dress is broken.”

“Then why not head over to the store to buy a new one?”

“I have nothing to wear. The zipper on my dress is broken.”

“Then fix it.”

“Can’t.”

“Why?”

“Because I need the scissor!”


This probably sounded better in my head than on screen but here goes.

      1. It’s possible that it is in your area. Folk songs accumulate variants

  2. Hi Bernadette, in English (UK anyway) we always use the plural ‘scissors’.
    But still amusing.

    1. Yes! Realised that a bit late ๐Ÿ˜…. We usually use ‘scissor’ in the singular form while speaking ๐Ÿ™ˆ

  3. I’ve only ever heard “scissors” here in the States. In any case, this was totally hilarious!

    1. We usually either use ‘scissor’ or a ‘pair of scissors’ while speaking. Though I guess grammatically it should be ‘scissors’ ๐Ÿค”

      1. It’s sort of like “pants.” A pair of pants is a single garment, but it has two legs. A scissor is a single took, but has two blades without which it is useless. English is an interesting language ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Dear Bernadette,

    The woman was chasing her boy round the room, she was chasing her boy with a broom, and while she was chasing her boy with a broom, she was chasing her boy round the room. Your piece made me laugh out loud. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Shalom,

  12. I’ve had a zipper on a coat break once. After it kept breaking, I figured it was time to get a new coat.

    1. Maybe the coat couldn’t agree with any of the new zips.
