To celebrate our beloved Dad’s 66th birthday, here’s a list of his classic sayings:

  • “Rise and shine; hit the deck; another day, another dollar; early bird gets the worm; come on, get up!”
  • “Finish your milk.”
  • “MTV rots your brain.”
  • “Give your dad a hug.”
  • “Get out of my chair.”
  • “Help your mom.”
  • “If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well.”
  • “Never trust someone who says ‘trust me.'”
  • [“Dad, could we get ice cream afterwards?] “It’s a definite maybe.” “It’s a definite possibly.”
  • “Never make promises you can’t keep.”
  • “What do you mean you’ve never heard of [historical thing]?”
  • “I remember when all this used to be corn fields, as far as the eye could see.”
  • “Who wants toast?” “Who wants popcorn?” “Who wants ice cream?” “Who wants Coco Wheats?” “Who wants a sandwich?” … “Then get in here.”
  • “So what movie do you want to see?  … How about [the movie I want to see]?”
  • “Things are really slow at work right now. It’s just dead. Nothing’s coming in.”
  • “I’m just buried at work right now.”
  • [On the DVR:] “I just love skipping all these commercials.”
  • [On parenting:] “Be firm, be fair.” “Give your kids a hug everyday.”
  • [On packing car trunks:] “There’s a science to this.” “Put the big things in first.”
  • [On buying more than enough tree-swing rope:] “You can always cut it shorter, but you can’t make it longer.”
  • [On a detracting evening news report about the “Promise Keepers”:] “Well, if ABC’s against it, it’s probably a good thing.”
  • “Work hard, be good. Love, Dad.”

    Another Dad Classic: “If something seems too good to be true, it probably is.” My dad is the exception. Happy birthday, Dad!
