My dad told me on 1-14-68 that a new sister had arrived. I commented, “Babies just BUG me!”
About my grandparents’ fire which destroyed their house: “They had lived there a long time anyway and I got sick of going to the same house all the time anyway!”
When my mom won a car (more on that another week): “A watch is fine and a pearl necklace is nice, but a CAR!” (she had previously won a watch and a necklace).
On Santa Claus, who smokes a pipe: “He’s going to get cancer!”
These are fun to read, because even now I can totally see myself saying – or at least thinking – a lot of those things … dry sense of humor and practical, that’s me 🙂
What are some funny things you said as a child?
