On the rare occasion that I was misbehavin'... "One day I hope you have twins & they are both just like you!"

Another gem from my teen years: "Keep rolling your eyes like that and they're gonna stick!"

And my personal favourite, often used when I had been whining and cajoling about things my friends were allowed: "If so & so jumped off the Ambassador Bridge would you want to do that too?"

Now just imagine my horror when the other day that same phrase popped out of my own mouth to my 12-1/2 year old son!!!!!! LOL

Cheers!

Dad:
-"It builds Character."
-When asked whats for dinner he would come up with things like "Road kill-something he killed with a wrench, usualy cane toads"
-And then there was this thing he would do where he would place his thumb, index finger and middle fingertips together and hold it up and say "Patience..." or when he was just frusterated at my brother or i in general.
-when asked why we had to listen to him his responce would be "Im bigger." this ended when i had a grwoth spurt and leant on his shoulder.
-When asked where we were going he would always say that he was taking us to sell us as slave labour to a cannery.

Mum:
-When asked what was for dinner she would respond "What ever you make us." or "A lovely batch of nuthen." (these only came into effect when my brother and i were old enough to realy be cooking for ourselves)
-When we used to ask if we could get a hair cut "Which one?" or "Only one?"
-When we stated "I am thirsty." she would respond "Hi, my name is Sharon"
-When we used to say "I feel like an ice cream..." She would respond "You dont look like an ice cream." (This one i have started using on people >.> )

When I was 12 and going to get teeth pulled out in preparation for braces I was terrified, so when we pulled up in the car to the dentists Mum threw a newspaper on my lap with a big headline "MAN DIES IN DENTISTS CHAIR" then laughed out loud at my terrifed reaction. I do think it's funny now though!


Thats awesome!
