    Wink Odd things family members say...

    How about a thread with the strange things that family members have said? Funny things, not mean things. Comments that make you stop and think, "Huh???"


    For example... today DH was sitting at his laptop computer and said:

    "I'm brave. Watch me scroll!"

    Huh?

    He explained that he was trying to learn how to use that rectangular thingy instead of the mouse.

    I think she means on the laptop, instead of connecting a mouse.

    Hello all and Jan, havent been on much of late. This question is a fun topic. SO here is one from me, quote, me dogs is barkin. end quote ( My quote marks are broken. )

    Mom and her kin use to say that after a long hard day of work, such as canning or butchering. It means their feet were sore and tired.

    When I was a little kid I'd ask my Gramma "doin' Gramma" and she'd tell me she was "making layovers to catch meddlers."

    My mom, a native Englishwoman, used to mix up words left and right. One evening while sitting and visiting, my sister was talking about her new boyfriend. My mother got a very serious look on her face and asked her, "Are you using condominiums?"

    We were still teasing her about that right up until she passed in 2010.

    When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, he tried over 2000 experiments before he got it to work. A young reporter asked him how it felt to fail so many times. He said, "I never failed once. I invented the light bulb. It just happened to be a 2000 step process."

    I had a family member who had a "digital" camera - say with a hard g! we laughed so hard (not to her face of course!) she also informed us we had lymph noids in our bodies instead of lymph nodes. Love her to pieces!

    I had a friend who would say "slap upside the wall" when she got excited about something.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    When my youngest daughter was about 18 months, she greeted her Daddy when he returned home from work,

    "Hi"

    Pause.

    "More hi."

    She's 28 now and we still laugh about it.


    I often have trouble sleeping at night. On one of "those" nights, I rolled over toward my sleeping DH. He opened his eyes very wide and yelled "rawr" into my face. Then he started to "rawr" a second time, but woke himself up. I asked him why he was roaring at me - his answer was - "There's an alien under the crib."

    We both cracked up.
