Momilies: As My Mother Used to Say--
Remember what your mother used to say? She used to say a lot of things. So did all our mothers. Well, in case you forgot or weren't paying attention, here is the wit, wisdom, and worry of mothers of every race, religion, or ethnicity, otherwise known as Momilies. Smile, as you relive those years in an instant, with:
"You're not the only pebble on the beach."
"It'll never get well if you pick at it."
"Don't run with a lollipop in your mouth."
"Always put on clean underwear in case you're in an accident."
. . . and many more!
And for YET more, there is MORE MOMILIES.
