Things Mom Would Never Say
  • "How on earth can you see the TV sitting so far back?"
  • "Yeah, I used to skip school a lot, too"
  • "Just leave all the lights on ... it makes the house look more cheery"
  • "Let me smell that shirt -- Yeah, it's good for another week"
  • "Go ahead and keep that stray dog, honey. I'll be glad to feed and walk him every day"
  • "Well, if Rahul's mamma says it's OK, that's good enough for me."
  • "The curfew is just a general time to shoot for. It's not like I'm running a prison around here."
  • "I don't have a tissue with me ... just use your sleeve"
  • "Don't bother wearing a jacket - the wind-chill is bound to improve"

Those are hilarious...I know these are definitely 'tongue in cheek', but the "Just leave the lights" on made me especially laugh....that WAS our Mom before she(or anyone of us) heard of 'carbon footprints', obviously!
Something Mom WOULD say...and I should have paid much more heed to was "Get that togue on"! "You'll have sinus problems when you grow-up if you don't"! Her words still cut the air, as my Elvis 'do' instantly (and solidly) froze into place before I managed to descend the third step into Alberta's -20F winter evening...wind chill...huh -35F? At the ripened age of 57 I suffer from acute sinus sorry I didn't listen Mom.
