  • Rarely used English sentences

    I might have asked this once before, but has anyone ever said anything, or heard anything, that just doesn't sound like a normal sentence in English?

    it especially happens with kids, I'm sure, as with the teens & preteens at our youth group Christmas party last night. One of the birls has really long hair, and was enjoying flinging it around with her head as our speaker was prepared to talk; she was hitting another kid with it. At which piont I said...

    "Please keep your hair to yourself."

    We both chuckled but she listened.
    John 3:16 (KJV) For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.

    Maybe the same type of thing -- Since becoming a parent I've said things I've never imagined like "Stop licking the window." "Cheerios do not belong up your nose." "Please do not sit on your brother."

    I have really long hair (hip length). Sometimes when sitting really close my DH will say, "Your hair is attacking me."
    Isaiah 26:3 You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.

        lol, reminds me of another one in Sparks in AWANA once. The one classroom we used had a Bible verse on the wall w/letters made out of construction paper. One kid was trying to pull one off and I said: "Those letters are to remain on the wall."

            My friend was playing a video game once and according to another friend in the first part of the game there's something hidden that you can find. My friend didn't believe my other friend so he said, "I'm going to find it and prove it isn't there."

              My Grandfather used to say, "that'll learn ya".

              My Dad had some "odd" sentences. Such as, "she has a black belt in ignorance". "That'll break you from sucking eggs". And another more popular one, "she/he/they are ate up with ignorance" or just, "plain ate up".

              I am from the southern Ohio, W.VA, northern KY border area, so we have a lot of sentences like that.
              Psalm 30:11-12 (New King James Version)

              11 You have turned for me my mourning into dancing;
              You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness,
              12 To the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent.
              O LORD my God, I will give thanks to You forever.

                An aunt of mine, watching her daughter's weight, told her to "Go weigh". They found her that afternoon, about ten blocks up the street.

                English sentences you will never hear from the White House:

                "I have seen the error of my ways."

                "I am endorsing Rick Perry for President."

                "George Bush was right."

                "We've GOT to stop borrowing money!"

                "I encourage all my supporters to give generously in 2012 to the Republican National Committee."

                  Jerry Clower, that loveable Christian comedian, once was telling a story about a woman who was "educated beyond her intelligence."

                  I think we have a lot of people in D.C. who are like that . . .
                  "Oir is leatsa an rioghachd, agus an cumhachd, agus a gloir, gu siorraidh, Amen." ("For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever, Amen" -- Scots Gaelic)

                    Our youth minister in a SS class - "It's hard to think like God". I just smirked and said "yep, almost impossible!"

                    Another adult SS class, a guy trying to remember a Bible story. He said "You know, it's the one with the woman. The SINNER!". Well, that narrows it down!

                    Used to be a billboard in Kentucky - "TATTOOS - while you wait!"

                      a couple fries short of a Happy meal says something.


                      A load short of a couple bricks says a bit more.


                      I always loved mom when I got home from school she'd look at me and say, Are you home?

                        I'm at that age when I'm old enough to keep laughing at the same jokes. So this happens regularly.

                        My wife will say "I'm going to the store if you want anything.". Or, "there's more food if you want more".

                        I say "What if I don't?".

                        She says "I'm still going", or "It's still there!". I don't know why I find this so funny!

                        Or when I'm leaving to go somewhere, I'll say "I'm off". Then after a moment add "but you knew that!". Guess that says a lot!!

                          Wife - "How long will you be gone?"

                          Me - "The whole time"

                              My Grandpa used to say, "I've forgotten more than you'll ever know.."
                              Some good "momisms" I remember telling my kids,
                              Shaving your eyebrows makes you look silly...
                              Please don't feed your beans to the baby..he has no teeth yet..
                              If you never sleep, your words won't grow.
                              Please pray for my unsaved loved-ones. Time is short.
