Just what Dad used to say
Sunday is Father's Day, and we've got something to get you in the mood. Here are some dads, and some of their "Dad-isms" -- the words of wisdom, the favorite sayings or warnings their children have never forgotten.
My dad always had a keen sense of humor and could spout off many Dad-isms.
His No. 1 favorite was at dinnertime. After we said grace he would always say, "Who eats the fastest gets the mostest."
Some other ones he used quite a bit:
"If you want to fight ... join the army."
"You're not saving when you are spending."
"To lose weight, keep your mouth shut."
Joan D. Cronin, Snellville
Other ones we thought about after this got published:
"It will get better before you get married"
"I'm Big Ed on overhead"
"Unc the Skunk"
"What nature has fogotten you can stuff with cotton" (When the girls were growing up and didn't have boobs yet)
