The Blowing of the Stink

When I was growing up, my dad was full of great one liners, including (but not limited to):

My grandma was slow, but she was 90...
Mess with the bull, you get the horns (not original, but useful nonetheless...)
Paybacks are hell (usually used after I tried to be funny by digging my elbow into his ribs for no reason...which I did A LOT.)

And my personal favorite:

Why don't you get outside and blow the stink off of you?

That's what spring is all about, right? Getting outside and blowing that inside-air-of-winter stink off of you?

(Oh, and getting super excited about a pretty rock that you accidentally the pile of pretty rocks surrounding the air conditioning unit that your mother has told you A MILLION times to stay out of, of course.)


  1. My mom uses that one too! And I always think about "airing the baby" whenever I see someone pushing a stroller outside.

  2. That face is so darn her chucks with that dress!!


Leave a comment, if you'd like...I'd love to hear from you!
