    "When there's too much food you find yourself stupid but when there's not enough, everyone knows you are."

    "stop killing your sister"
    "why did you do that"?
    " what the hell is wrong with you"?
    "why is the garage on fire"?
    " what the hell is this in my shoe"?

    Great grandpa Otto would say about a thing really well made that it was “hell for stout”. Always liked that.

    My mom never gave that kind of warning. You just heard a loud thump before feeling the centralized main on the back corner of the head. I swear that she had a meral implant in her "flicking" finger. It always felt like I was hit with a mini baseball bat. Didn't matter who was present either.

    Mom "You guys would argue over a turd in the road if someone said they liked it."

    I think of that often around here. :)

    Mom didn't say much, she just stretched her arm and slapped me. I got all the slapping, my younger brother and sister were perfect. They monitored all my moves and as soon as I slipped they ran to tell mom and watched me get slapped.

    Maybe it wasn't so, but I'm pretty sure my dad didn't like me a whole lot. He'd say stuff like "You'll grow up to be a worthless punk", rip the Beatles and Led Zeppelin posters off my room walls in some fit of rage, confiscate my LP's, and stuff like that.

    But that's all water under the bridge, he mellowed out quite a bit in his old age and we're best pals now.

    Is that you talking to your cats? Asking for a friend.
