Momma Always Said...

(To see a BIGGIEMUS version of the cartoon, click on the amputated leg.)

Mom's have a way of lovingly scaring the doo out of their kids.

My mom would scare us to keep us from doing things we shouldn't do.
She told us things that scarred me for life...things that stayed with me...afraid to do anything contrary to what MOM TOLD us.
Today, I still have fears because of my mom.
I have fears that I will go blind, have a permanently weird face, grow hair where I don't want it, and a fear that my dad would murder me.

She would say things like...

"STOP making those faces or your face is going to stay that way!"

"Don't sit too close to the television, it'll ruin your eyes."

"You're going to put your eye out with that thing!"


And then there is the one that inspired today's new cartoon.

Isn't that what moms are supposed to do?

I got the "your face is going to freeze like that" thing too.

I told Caedmon the other day he was going to poke his eye out running with a fork. He said, "No, I'll poke it IN."
