Mummy's bloopers

No. 4 was eating and talking at the same time, as usual. I scolded her.

Don't talk with your mouth open!

(Wait a sec, that's not right.)

Don't talk with your mouth closed!

(Not right either. Let's try again.)

Don't eat with your mouth open!

(No! That's not what I want to say!)

Don't talk with your mouth full!

(Finally! Must send the brain for a check-up.)

Nadia, at first glance, the 1st statement sounds ok, right? Try it and see.

This is another gem from my husband. The children were being rowdy in the car. As he drove, he'd warn them to sit down, put seat belt on, keep quiet etc., while I play 'Game Boy' or read Patricia Cornwell.
Daddy: Sit down and keep quiet, or I 'll give the police to you!..err, i'll give you to police..or..errr..police to you...

Kak Teh, the kids should've said, "yeh, dad is gonna give us the police, thanks, dad!"
