a word from my dad

inspired by this story about southern idioms, i asked my dad for his favorites. “These are a few off the top of my head. Some stolen, some borrowed, and some originated in times of need. I am sure I will think of more as soon as I send this email. When you grow up around a sawmill with old timers, two older brothers and an alcoholic dad, you become well versed in “sayings” not to mention profanity. I have given up the profanity out of respect for the good lord, but I do love an old saying.”

  • “God never blesses a man leaning on a shovel and praying for a hole”
  • “It’s high time for a head knockin” 
  • “It’s going to be you and me and mostly me” 
  • “When you smell yourself, everybody else has been smelling you for 2 days”
  • “Tear a hole in your britches if you want to keep the gnats out of your face”
  • “He is scratching a broke behind”
  • “This is not the sad story department”
  • “You are fishing on credit”
