Did your parents/guardians ever say certain phrases throughout your childhood? If so, what were they?
I’m just going to stick with the nice/funny phrases.
My dad used to say a few phrases at any given time:
“Quit piddlin’ around…”
“Back in Nam….. (insert whatever subject here).” He meant the Vietnam War, even though he’d never been there – wasn’t in the army either.
“When I was your age….” – he loved to say that he had to walk to school in snow storms, up hill (both ways), with no boots.
The only phrase I remember my mom saying often (usually to my siblings) was, “Just wait until you have kids of your own!”
