    Hey everyone, what are some unusual things your parents used to say? Extra points if you've caught yourself saying them!


    When asked "Where are we going?"

    Mom's reply "To h377 in a handbasket". On her defense, we were awful kids.

    So funny you mentioned "Where are we going?"

    Sometimes Mom and Dad would just say, "Let's go somewhere!" Out of the blue.

    We kids would ask, "Where are we going?"

    He would always say "Going to see a man about a horse!"

    I think he said that when he didn't really have an answer. He just wanted to take a drive and see where we ended up.

    When us kids would stall doing something, Mom said, "Procrastination is the assassination of motivation".
