DadsFor Father’s Day, a salute to Dads everywhere with some of the pearls of “dad-isms” that have come from the fathers I know:

“Life is too short to drink cheap wine.”

“She was in the family way…she was in everyone’s way.”

“What did I take in school? I took up space.”

“I’ll take a look at it.” (my handyman Dad!)

“Don’t let the facts stand in the way of a good story.”

“We’re only short what we haven’t got.”

“We grow old too soon and smart too late.”

“I’m just yanking your chain.”

“All it takes is money.” (To which someone always replies, “And lots of it.”)

“Money isn’t everything, but it beats whatever comes second.”

What did your Dad always say?
