Away An' Ask Your Mother! : Your Scottish Father's Favourite Sayings Paperback
Allan Morrison's penchant for collecting couthy Scots sayings over the years has resulted in a rich seam of books over the past five years.
This latest is no different as Allan has given dad's their chance to have their say in this surefire bestseller. 'Away An' Ask Yer Mother!' is a compilation of those phrases and sayings which henpecked and harassed (and well-loved) dad's have uttered to their children over the years.
Do you remember these classics? 'YE NEED TAE DAE WHIT YE HAVE TAE DAE, AFORE YE CAN DAE WHIT YE WANT TAE DAE!' 'IT'S OK WI' ME IF IT'S OK WI YER MOTHER.' 'NOW, BE GOOD!
AND IF YOU CAN'T BE GOOD BE CAREFUL. AND IF YOU CAN'T BE CAREFUL, DON'T CA'IT EFTER ME!' 'EVERYONE IN THIS HOUSE IS ENTITLED TO MY OPINION!' 'JUST WAIT TILL I GET YOU HOME.' It is recommended that you repeat the father's sayings in this book out loud, preferably with a lump in your throat, a slightly red face, a wagging vinger and a loving heart!
