I have been re-working traditional phrases, turning them on their ear. “A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush” I don’t like that one “Two birds in the bush are worth more than one in the hand because otherwise you wouldn’t have invented your netgun and caught ten birds.” Clunky but you get the idea. Use your creativity to get what you want. If you are satisfied with what you have, new and better possibilities are sometimes shut down.
