Just How Old Are You Anyway....?
A few weeks back I wrote a 55 about things you just don't hear anymore...
The annoying clicking of a room full of typewriters..
Your parents hollering at you to 'Burn the Papers'!
Well, I have a few more forgotten tidbits of advice and parental direction, that may have slipped into oblivion.
And I'm just the Buck-A-Roo to jar your memory.
So....When's the last time (if ever), you heard someone say...?
"Quit slamming the screen door"
"Fill the ice trays, were having company"
"Watch for the postman, I want this letter to out today"
"Don't forget to wind the clock before you go to bed"
"Roll your pant leg up...You'll get it caught in the bike chain again"
"Don't you dare go outside with your school clothes on"
"It's your turn to dry the dishes"
"Walk more quietly! You'll make the cake in the oven fall!"
"There's a dollar in my bill-fold, put some gas in the car"
"Don't go very far...I may need a push to 'pop the clutch'.
"All the foods in the ice-chest..I'm defrosting the Frigidaire"
"Get out from under the sewing machine, pumping it messes up the thread"
"Don't sit so close to the TV, it's hard on your eyes"
"Turn the antennae a little to the right..Bonanza's about to start"
"A Quarter for the movies? Is my name Rockefeller?"
"Quit crossing your eyes...They'll get stuck that way"
"Don't run in the house with the sharp scissors"
"I don't know where it is, look in the 'junk drawer"....
"Say that again, and I'll wash your mouth out with soap"
"Your cruisin for a bruisin".........
OK..Did your Mom or Dad have any favorite Words of Wisdom?
