“If one of your friends jumped off a cliff, would you do it too?”

“Because I said so. That’s why.”

Everytime I even come close to saying one of these, I see my mom’s face. And I have to laugh, because within 5 years of having kids, I had said both of them. Numerous times.

What turn of phrase do you remember from your childhood that still gets under your skin?

    If you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all.

    So true, but I do wish there was another way to say it!

    “You knew what you were doing!! What where you thinking?” all in one breath. Now if I knew what I was doing it would be pretty obvious what I was thinking, right….. ARGH
