Mom and Rick came up to DC for a weekend of family fun and Cherry Blossom wonderment and at least we had the family fun. We did the usual touristy stuff like seeing the Declaration of Independence and viewing the baby cheetahs at the zoo. We also tried to document many momisms, some of which include:
1. You couldn't stir em with a stick = it was crowded
2. Let us proceed with vigor = let's go
3. Crazy as a mule = mixed metaphor
4. Cold as a witch's titty = freezing
5. My thighs are saying "scuze me, pardon me when I'm taking Pat and Charlie" = I'm chubby and my legs rub together when I walk.
More entries to the mom lexicon just in:
6. Hard as a brickbat = really hard, usually referring to food items.
7. Dear Gussy! = an expression of surprise, disgust
8. Dark as the inside of a billy goat = really really dark
9. Yesiree Bobcat tail = indeed
* We say the blessing every night before dinner. You know, God is great, God is good, let us thank him for our food... Well, when it comes time for the Amen, Mom ALWAYS says, "Amen, brother ben, shot a rooster, killed a hen." We're not sure what the definition of this is.
Mom was quite confused that there are 2 entrances to the Dupont Circle metro.
During dessert ordering time at the delicious Tabard Inn yesterday, I asked for the "Jumbo Lump Crab Cake" and the server dropped his pen and paper in shock. I was just wondering if he would blink if a person were to order an entree for dessert.
