Today is May 12th, and welcome to The Daily Quote – a podcast designed to kickstart your day in a positive way. I’m your host, Andrew McGivern, and I’m happy you are here with me today.

Today, we celebrate National Limerick Day, a fun little holiday that honors those humorous, sometimes nonsensical five-line poems known for their amusing and rhythmic qualities. It’s a day to play with words and revel in the joys of a clever rhyme. In the spirit of National Limerick Day, our quote today is by Ogden Nash, a master of wit and wordplay:

“A door is what a dog is perpetually on the wrong side of.”

This quote captures Nash’s knack for observing everyday frustrations with a humorous twist, much like a limerick turns ordinary situations into something laughable. Why pair this quote with National Limerick Day?

Both Nash’s poetry and limericks thrive on a sense of play and a dash of absurdity. They challenge us to see the lighter side of our frustrations and the humor in our routines. Just as a limerick plays with words to land a punchline, Nash’s quote plays with the idea of perspective — the dog’s, the owner’s, and ours as we empathize with both.

So today, why not pen your own limerick about the small frustrations in life, or perhaps about your pet’s quirky habits? Here’s a quick example to get you started: There once was a dog full of vigor, Who constantly pulled on his trigger. He’d bark at the door, Then flop on the floor, His tail wagging with much bigger vigor. I hope that brings a chuckle and sparks some creativity in your day.

Let’s remember Ogden Nash’s playful approach to life’s little trials and find a way to laugh at our own daily dramas. That’s our show for today. Thank you for joining me, and make sure to tune in tomorrow for more insights wrapped in humor. Keep smiling—it’s a natural way to brighten your day and everyone else’s around you!
