Ten Things Tuesday- Now

Not gonna lie.
Coming up with a Ten Things Tuesday theme starting with the letter N has been a thinker for me.

I just settled on phrases involving the word NOW.
Let's see what I can come up with.

Here we go.

1. How now brown cow
     Didn't we all learn this when we were little? Just me?

2. Now and then
     Once in a while

3. Now and Later
     It's a candy OR it's like saying have your cake and eat it too.

4. Not now
      Some things should just never happen. Like the water heater or refrigerator dying. It's always when you need to do laundry and just bought groceries.

5. Right now
     Did I say put your clothes away tomorrow? No. Do it right now.

6. Nowadays
     In this period of time, it's not really specified. Just around the present day.

7. It's now or never
     Some things come around once in a lifetime. If you don't do it, the ship will just sail without you.

8. Now,you're talking
     Someone has just had a great idea!

9. Now, now
     Everything is going to be OK. OR, it could possibly mean that you just want it Now! Now!
(Al, feel free to laugh at this point)

10. Now what?
     This is a personal favorite of my mothers. Said in an exasperated tone and tends to give one the feeling that the person saying it just doesn't give a shit.

Have a great Tuesday!


  1. Number 7 is a good reminder to always be prepared for opportunities that might crop up.

  2. Yep, I learned "How now brown cow". What a weird saying, huh? I wonder what its origin is.


    1. Robyn, isn't it still fun to say? I wonder if it was started to learn phonics.

  3. I wish I thought of this before my Norway tale.
    NOW you tell me!

  4. I like the various uses of the word now. Very creative post:)
