    When my son was sad, I told him: It's better to be on the Upside of Down. He's used it ever since. As far as I know, this quote was born in my own mind and no one else's.

    There are quite a few strange sayings in the French language... Like to say " I have other fish to fry" , we say " I have other cats to whip" .

    My mother used to say "Oh, go to sleep!" when my brother and I got out of hand. Of course, she wasn't above telling us to "go to hell!" when we really got on her nerves. Such fond memories! (Seriously)

    ghost19 "Front sight focus."

    "That's what your mom said" or "So does your mom"....I didn't make those up but around my work, it's been a classic for many years. Usually the quote is inserted at the most inappropriate moments possible during a meeting, briefing, etc. I've lost count at the times I've been yelled at for blurting it out. Juvenile? Completely. But the entertainment value is priceless. lol

    Mine are pretty much impossible to translate, but I do have some Norwegian ones.
    I love this! :congratulatory::cool:

    My friend from Greece tells me that when they meet a cute dog, they will say "where are you?" when they pet it. Of course, I use that in both German, Norwegian and English now.

    Mom had one, years ago this was...don't know if she made it up...I'm dropping the s-bomb here:
    Horseshit and cabbage!
    Anyone who's followed the horses in the 4th of July parade, or maybe you ride, or maybe you're familiar with the matter, there is a similarity between the two...she'd scowl, squint to the point where her eyes were almost closed, and exclaim.

    I like this a lot. As you've used it I believe it's original. Upside of Down has been previously coined but if you said it prior to about 2005, you might be first. It's got a number of uses: as you've stated it, and as you've stated it in reference to parenting Downs syndrome children. As a learning tool to learn from ones' mistakes. There are a few other uses as well. A Chris August wrote a song about it, wanna hear it? here it goes His song is my closest association to your saying. When I'm in the most trouble in life, spiritually, I experience the closeness of God the most intensely. I'm not happy that's the case, but that's my experience.

    Well, this one's not funny, but it is mine. "You know you have taught a child well if he/she will ask questions above and beyond the material taught in class."

    I said this during a lecture to a "Philosophy Club," and the teacher said, "Bless you, dear." lol! There were a lot of brilliant kids in that club. I truly believe that most every child can succeed if they are given the tools. :)

    There must be thousands of funny region- and country specific sayings :) Like in the Netherlands, when you have unfinished business with someone, in a negative way, we say we have 'an apple to peel with him'

    You have to wonder where that came from :D

    Over here it is "you have an axe to grind" in relation to unfinished business (negative business) - I am unsure of the origin of that one!

    Well... You grind the axe so it's sharp, then go finish your business with it :D

    Thanks for posting that Neesy- I so want to watch it. Alas, I am back at work since 6am with unfinished business, so can't watch now. There's a lot of Southern quotes I use, but none original. I'm a copycat. Bless your heart and Oh my word are frequent - and they can be kind or they can be mean and unless you know the backstory you can't tell the difference. Southern girls are really mean.
