Grown-ups always like to say things to confuse kids. Have you ever noticed that?
“If you think you’re going to get away with this, young lady, you’ve got another think coming!”
“Another think coming” – – – just what do adults mean by that? Grown-ups always say things like that. Like, “Behave yourself.” Did you ever wonder about that one? I mean, it’s so hard to concentrate on anything else she’s saying because I’m still working on “Behave yourself.” And I’m being as ‘Have’ as I know how to be. (Please note the long ‘A’ on that word)
I just hate it when grown-ups think up all these confusing phrases. Everybody knows they only do that to confuse kids. It works, too. I’m still pondering the cruelty of the phrase, “Behave yourself.”
What kinds of things did the adults in your life use to make your life miserable? I’m just really anxious to learn if Behave was a word created just for torture purposes or if it really has a purpose.
