We all had parents...at least I think we did...lol
Parents always seem to come up with famous 'lines' that they use over and over again. You know like.."if you don't stop crying, I'll give you something to cry about
!" How goofy is that??
What famous line did your parents use over and over? Maybe one good one and/or one silly one. For me mom had the goofball one. It was from the movie "Bambi" when Thumper said about
Bambi...He doesn't walk very good, does he? And when mama Rabbit asked what his father had told him, Thumper said "If you can't say something nice... don't say nothing at all."
But the one I liked the best came from my dad...and it took me some time before I really 'got it'! I was younger than my teens and I don't remember the circumstances but one of his favorite sayings was, "If you want a job done right, do it yourself". And Dad was right! The longer I thought about
that the more it meant to me.
What lines did your parents or family use?
