What a riot!  Of course, it doesn't address many parts of growing up in a Greek household, and hearing phrases like (I'll put them in their translated form - it's much funnier that way) "you want to eat wood?" (i.e. a spanking) and "you dumb eggplant!"

LOL!  Lord have mercy!  I heard every one of those admonishments growin' up but the one's that scared me the most were 'Wait til your daddy gits home." and "I'm grabbin' a switch (a small but unbreakable, flexible branch from a Hickory tree capable of reaching long distances), boy!"  :D  Thanks for bringing up traumatic childhood memories, Ozgeorge. :laugh: :laugh:

"I will change your lightbulbs",  "I will burn you", "I will eat you", "I will (poo) you" and the dreaded koutala and pantdofla.
The sins I don't commit are largely due to the weakness of my limbs.

Oh, the switch.  My mom used forsythia branches... yeow!  The branch grows around 3-4 feet long and no thicker than a finger.
