About Mother Knew Best by T.M. Drykken
For millennia, mothers have adopted a language all of their own, often misunderstood by their parental counterparts, but translations made clear and direct to their wide-eyed urchins. They have a way of making their points with alarming precision, simple sentence shockers. From the threatening to the sarcastic to the logical, our mothers have created an idiom compendium rivaling those from Oxford or the ancient scholars of biblical times.
This unsettling collection shares but a few of these phrases along with the inherent consequences of not taking them to heart as children and passing them off as just “things mama said.” When the figurative becomes reality, the nightmares become alive and the illogical reigns. From a pestering angel to an ill-tempered businessman to an unrelenting and injurious storm, one would be wise to listen with eyes, ears, and mind wide open to what is occurring…because more often than not…mother knew best.
