You may be unfamiliar with those words, but you know the language.
It’s the stuff that only Dads say.
When your Dad is asked, by means of a general greeting, if he was doing okay:
Dadism: “If I was doing any better, I’d have to take an ill pill.”
When you actually admit to having a headache:
Dadism: “If I had a head like that, mine would hurt too.”
When your Dad sees you and your friends approaching:
Dadism: “Uh-oh. Here comes a motley crew!”
When you are in 6th grade and your Dad is folding laundry and finds a pair of your Brut Fabrege bikini briefs:
Dadism: “Hey Kev — where do you want me to put your panties?”
Did I miss any Dadisms? There are more out there. What did your Dad say?
