GUEST,Azizi BS: How you say the things you say (58* d) RE: BS: How you say the things you say 29 Mar 05


Speaking of family sayings, if the television was on and a child happened to accidently block someone's view of the TV screen,
my mother would say:

"Was your father a glassmaker?"

We weren't expected to answer {We'd better not!!}, but since we knew the answer was 'No', we'd move out of the way of the TV screen.

I suppose a wife of a real glassmaker would have to come up with another saying to tell her kids to "Move out of the way."
****

Thanks for them responses. I'm enjoying them. But I'll deny that I'm ever irritating when I use MY sayings. At least..um..maybe..well if I do sound like a broken record sometimes, It's all good..and my bad and it's more than a notion to find new sayings to say..

Oh wait..I'll just read this thread!!

****

BTW Amos, thanks for the info on the origin of the saying "It's a trip"..But what does AFAIK mean? Does it mean "As far as I know?"

And Rumanci and Alba does *bg* mean 'big grin'??

Just wonderin..
