What is/was your favorite "Momily"?
A Momily is from the book, “Momilies” written by Michele B. Slung, and is “things your mother used to say to you.” They even have their own website at http://www.momilies.net/ and their own dictionary definition, which reads:
1, a sermon made by a mother
2. an admonitory or moralizing discourse from mother to child
There are plenty of “them” out there on the Internet, of course, like, “If you fall down because of (insert reckless/idiotic stunt here) and break both your legs, DON’T COME RUNNING TO ME!” or the famous, “I hope when you grow up, your kids act JUST LIKE YOU!”
So, what was your favorite one, of the many your own Mom probably told you?
Mine was when my wonderful mother would admonish me about drinking my milk, by saying, “Drink ALL of your milk, before it gets cold!”
I’d gulp it all down, quickly, too.
