Grandma’s Slice of Idiom Advice

If you can’t get back on the horse

– -well, you can, of course

If you can’t find your way home

you’re not alone

If you can’t lead the horse to water

then, dear granddaughter,

forget about the nag.

‘Cause if you can’t get to the cookie,

eat through the bag!

and if you bite off more than you can chew

don’t worry, you’ll pull through

Let sleeping dogs lie

and you’ll be fine

‘Cause your guess is as good as mine.
