Busy? I’ll Make This Short

laughI love encouraging and digging into the word around here, but I have to admit I’m spent. The busyness of the past few weeks coupled with some change in the weather that knocked my body for a loop have left me a little loopy.

So today, if you’ll indulge me, I’d like to just be a little silly and not at all serious. I started thinking about the busyness and certain sayings associated with it. Maybe you know the ones. Things like,

  • I’m busier than a one-legged man in a butt-kicking contest
  • I’m busier than a one-armed wallpaper hanger
  • I’m busier than a one toothed man in a corn-on-the-cob eating contest

I don’t know why they all involve missing body parts of various importance, but they do! Well, I searched and found a couple other good ones.

  • I’m busier than a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs (I’d heard a modified version of that one)
  • I’m busier than a mosquito in a nudist colony (that one is just funny)

Now, I thought I’d try to marshal my creativity and come up with some of my own and then turn it over to you for your creations. Here goes nothing!

  • I’m busier than a one-armed massage therapist (got the missing appendage in early)
  • I’m busier than a pothead in a candy store
  • I’m busier than an air conditioner in an oven factory
  • I’m busier than a Sumo wrestler at a Golden Corral
  • I’m busier than a grammar nazi in an online forum

I know you’re busy too so I appreciate your stopping by my digital neck of the woods and hopefully having a little fun with me!

Your turn! Hit me with your best, “I’m busier than…” statement or tell me which is the favorite you’ve heard before.


  1. This one is my favorite: “I’m busier than a grammar Nazi in an online forum.” I can’t think of any of my own at the moment (no coffee yet), but that’s for the lighter post today. Appreciated!

    • That was my favorite too. 🙂 Thanks Kari!

  2. Unfortunately, I don’t have an “I’m busier . . .” to add here, but I sure did get a chuckle out of your post, Jason. It was a great way to start my day!

    • It’s fun to show a different side now and again. 🙂 Thank you, Martha! Blessings to you too.

  3. I’m with Kari, the grammar Nazi one made me laugh. And in the midst of busyness laughter is welcome relief. Thank you!

    • I’m glad! Laughing and smiles are a great thing to share with friends. 🙂 Thanks so much, Deb.

  4. I’m busier than a traffic control police officer at a school zone during school hours. (Warning: No Donuts are hurt at this time:)

    • Ah man, you just made me hungry for some doughnuts! 🙂 Good one, Ed. Thank you.

  5. I hear you on being busy! Love the change of pace, Jason.

    Okay, here goes nothin’! “I’m busier than a leaf in a tornado!”

    “I’m busier than Lance Armstrong was in the Tour De France!”

    “I’m busier than a raccoon in a coon hunt~”

    They can’t all be genius…

    • I’m late to respond, but great job, Floyd! Thanks for the smiles. 🙂
