Why did I say that?

I was talking to my daughter the other day and I used the term "Everybody and their brother" she looked at me strangly and asked just what did that mean. I started to respond and realized I didn't have a clue.

If everyone is already there then wouldn't the brothers be there too?

Some other strange things that our family says are...

"Good night, sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite"

"Love you little, love you big, love you like a big fat pig"

"Go get the stink blown off you"

"He's rough and tough and full of flea's and never been washed above the knees"

Are there some strange things that come out of your mouth that you have know idea where they came from? Please share them.

  1. "Never be seen on a galloping horse"... I told one of my students this today as we hung a poster in the cafeteria (slightly crooked). She looked at me funny and I started to laugh at myself as I said, "though I dont expect anyone to ride through here on a horse..."

    So, why do we still say it?
