A Few Words From Steve, Then Parental Quirks Part 2: Those Things They Say

Happy freezing ass Monday, everyone. Just what we hoped for after our freezing ass weekend, am I right? No? Yeah, didn’t think so.

Believe it or not, Carin and I seriously went out for frozen yogurt on freezing ass Saturday. We felt like idiots at first, but once we walked into the place and saw a pretty sizable crowd we felt a bit better about it. We even found a new pub to frequent afterwards, so it ended up being a good day, even though it was freezing ass.

Freezing ass Sunday was thankfully spent indoors with the Guelph Storm and the Grey Cup. Both of those games, as it turns out, were maulings. Better yet, they were maulings that went in my favour. Any time I can watch the Kitchener Rangers get embarrassed, it’s a good day. And what can I say about the Grey Cup. I expected the Riders to take it, but I didn’t think they would run away with it the way they did. By the time Hamilton figured out they were in a game, it was too late to stop the runaway train and Saskatchewan never let up. That was fun, CFL. See you next summer.

Anyway, let’s start this freezing ass Monday with yet another contribution from Gill. Remember, you’re all more than welcomed to send in something of your own. The inbox is happy to be used for more than just jokes and stuff, although it does love the jokes and the stuff. So if you have jokes, stuff or a guest post, here’s how to get it where it needs to go.

When you were a kid did you ever hear “if you yell you’ll get wrinkles?` “this is going to hurt me more than this is going to hurt you.` or the other timeless classic, “I’m doing this because I care.` Did they often leave you questioning not only yourself but your parent’s sanity?

Even as adults there are those things our folks say that leave us wondering. Two prime examples are my own parents. My mom says “nobody’s perfect but me.` or my dad’s classic, “that’s like a fart in a mitt.`

Why do they say those things? My theory is that this is all apart of the quirkiness that makes our folks interesting at the least, and comparison of note worthy with our friends.

So out there in Reader-land. What interesting things do your parents say, or what did they say when you were a kid?

Bye for now
