Proverbs {as told by first graders}

A first grade teacher collected old, well known proverbs. She gave each kid in her class the first half of a proverb, and had them come up with the rest:

As you shall make your bed so shall you... mess it up.
Becky, Philadelphia

Better to be safe than... punch a 5th grader.

Strike while the... bug is close.
Wanda, Canada

It's always darkest before... daylight savings time.

Never underestimate the power of... termites.
Buckeroomama, Hong Kong

You can lead a horse to water but... how?

Don't bite the hand that... looks dirty.

No news is... impossible.
Caroline, England
