Whenever my mother got in a state, she’d declare, “I feel like the wreck of the Hesperus, the Titanic and the Lusitania all rolled into one,” careful to keep things chronological. The old people they sure knew how to lay things on thick. But least they taught us the art of melodrama and not a little history.
* do you recall any sayings your parents or grandparents had?

My grandpa taught me:
“Never play cards with a man called Doc, never admit to being intelligent or having a driver’s license, and never sleep with a woman who has more problems than you do.”
I’ve broken each of those rules at times and paid the penalty . Your grandpa was a wise man. Thanks for the comment
