An Abecedary of ...

… family sayings.

(Forgive the inside jokes. BTW, I once asked my mother if she read my blog and she said, “I don’t have time to read all that shit.”)

Annie story [“A long and unnecessarily convoluted tale”.]

Ben done told [“I’ve already heard the news.”]

Colder than a well-digger’s butt [“quite cold”]

Don’t know sheep shit from Shinola. [“Uninformed”]

Erin Len [“You are exasperating.”]

For forty years [“a long time”]

Well I fucking guess. [“That is not going to happen, ever.”]

Hunker-jaw [“off kilter”]

I’m fucking this cow, you just hold the tail. [“Kindly do as I ask without interfering.”]

Jee-haw [“exist in accord” (Something about mules…)]

Kara Brooke [as opposed to all the other Karas in the house]

Like a cow pissing on a flat rock. [“raining very hard”]

Can’t see through muddy water. [“You’re blocking my view of the television.”]

Now I've had worse than that in my eye. ["I mock your pain."]

The Office [“the local tavern”]

Saving it for Pearl [“It’s too good for the likes of you or me.”]

Queen No Fun [refers to mamacita -- can you believe it?]

The Red Ass [“a state of irritation”]

Sorry don’t feed the bulldog [“Your apology does little to placate me.”]

Running his traps [“going about his unimportant daily activities”]

Umpteen times [“many times, indeed”]

Verklempt ["overwhelmed"]

Watch his head [“You clearly don’t know what you’re doing.”]

Xenu loves you. [Oh wait, that's the Cruise family.]

You can want in one hand and shit in the other and see which one fills up faster. [“You are not likely to get what you want.”]

Z okay, no Z this week

I would love to hear your family sayings in the comments.

  3. We don't use colloquisms as much as "words of wisdom". Two of my Dad's:

    Take half as many clothes and twice as much money. (on packing)

    Effort expended does not equal results accomplished.
