    My mom had a standard response whenever I mirrored Ruthie’s behavior. She’d give me “the Look” and tell me “I can give you something to REALLY cry about”. Shut me up real fast! (She never had to actually DO anything other than that.)

    This strip remembers what happened 12 years ago this date. Let us not forget the horrible event that happened 12 years ago.

    : D My mom always said, “I’ll get the stick!” It worked like a charm, even on rowdy neighborhood kids. And… she didn’t even have a stick.

    My dad always said that. If that didn’t work he’d start unbuckling his belt. That got us in line real fast.

    Yes, I’ll never forget (was getting dressed for work while watching morning news. By the time the second plane hit I was on the road and turned on the TV for whole office in the conference room.


    I had already dressed in RWB because it was an election Tuesday.

    Unless you lived in a treeless area, I’m sure she could’ve found a stick.

    Maybe they use the same bath water. Ruthie’s only six, the water can’t be THAT dirty afterwards!!!

    Mom always said,“I can’t make you… but I can make you wish you had.”

    I don’t know how old that sort of statement is (probably prehistoric), but my grandfather (b. 1893) reported that his father used to say, “Quit your crying or I’ll give you something to cry about.”

    I’ve always wondered why parents say that to their crying children. Seems to me they’ve already got something to cry about, and now they want them to have more?

    On one of his albums, Bill Cosby once said that his mother told him, “I’ll knock you into the middle of next week!” To which Bill responded, “Please do, because I’m having a terrible time this week!”
