My Mom the Hoot

Today is my mom’s birthday, and even though she is in heaven today, I think of her because of her pithy sayings.  The older I get, the more these words ring in my head and actually come out of my mouth!

Are you ready?  Some are a bit crass.  She was never afraid to be crass if there was a laugh at stake!

Use your head for something other than a hat rack.

If you don’t like it, lump it.

I like me, who do you like?

Better late than never.

You luparsh! (flabby-ass in Polish slang)

Wait?  Wait broke down the bridge.

Shit isn’t swearing.  If you can’t shit you’re sick.

Never put off for tomorrow what can be done today.

Ee-er-sen-si-woo-loo-chai-bai-joow-shi, you think I’m crazy, my mother rides around in a little red kiddie car.  (Make string motion between ears as though flossing the brain.)

Don’t wish your life away.

(Any pen that wasn’t fine-tipped)- This isn’t a pen, it’s a paintbrush.

What do you want, egg in your beer?

No time like the present.

Don’t put off for tomorrow what can be done today.

You’re ATNA – all talk no action!


As you can imagine, she could be a handful.  She was also incredibly strong-willed and optimistic.  I will miss her always.
