I think I heard some of those sayings long ago..
With the exception of Robert Young- moms knows best.

Yep, I heard them, too. Isn't it amazing how Mom's advice was the same world wide?

Guess my mother never learned these.

Fun puzzle even if my 35 on this tiny laptop is not competitive with those of you whose Moms uttered these nuggets of wisdom.

I'm on the road (bridge weekend, Barry) in la Grande Motte, a charmless resort mostly of gray cement on the Mediterannean coast near Montpellier.

Loved it. Was kinda lookin' for the one warning us that if 'we don't stop a certain something, we'll go blind'. I know, it's naughty, but couldn't resist. woo

You know my mom?????? Our score was so good because you called her and asked her what she used to tell me, right?

That was fun.

One of my mom's was "no man will put a ring on a finger that looks like that" (when i would bite my nails). Guess I showed her!

I think a lot of our mom's must have been in the same club or something to think up these tidbits of wisdom. I sure heard most of them, too.

This was a fun way to remember our moms!

I want to preface this right up front....this is NOT my list. LOL

Here are 10 Things My Mother Told Me that Were Complete Lies…

1. “If you have sex, your thighs will get big.”
I swear to God… this one kept me a virgin until I was 18 and finally realized that all my slutty friends still had skinny thighs…

2. “If you go outside with wet hair, you’ll catch a cold.”
We all know that the cold virus doesn’t care how damp your hair is… but I always made sure my hair was dry.

3. “If you eat watermelon at night, you’ll wet the bed.”
I loved watermelon… it was my favorite food as a kid. I don’t think that watermelon and bladder control are connected… but I could be wrong I guess.

4. “If you ditch school, you’ll never get into a good college.”
This was straight up bullshit. I got into USC and I ditched more than 50% of my classes my junior and senior year.

5. “If you wear shoes with heels, it’ll stunt your growth.”
She just didn’t want me going out of the house in high heels and looking like a whore. But this one had an adverse effect as I am now a shoe addict.

6. “If you drop out of Calculus, you’ll regret it later.”
Still waiting to regret that one… I think the odds are in my favor (good thing I didn’t drop out of statistics, huh?)

7. “The police will arrest you if you mail that chain letter.”
I obsessed for weeks that I’d be arrested after mailing one anyway… I guess in her era Andy Griffith didn’t have anything better to do?

8. “If you crack your knuckles, they’ll get big like your dad’s.”
I didn’t stop to think that my dad’s hands were about twice as big as mine… but I sure didn’t want those ugly knuckles.

9. “If you play near the street, you’ll probably get kidnapped.”
I understand wanting us to be safe from cars, but come on… this kind of scared the shit out of me as a child.

10. “If you say mean things to your sister, she might die and you’ll never have had the chance to say you’re sorry.”
While this one is technically possible… it’s pretty unlikely… but I have to admit, it forced me and my sister to be nice to each other which was a good thing because as adults, we are still very close.
