Aw Mr. Pete!

Posted by Allison on May 6, 2009

When I was a little girl growing up in Sask-a-bush my mother was our entertainment.  Well not on purpose but that woman is probably one of the funniest people I know, when she’s not trying.  My mother doesn’t swear, in fact I remember the ONE time I heard her say “shit” when I was a kid I just about shit my pants.  Clearly this isn’t something that I inherited.   “Damn” and “Hell” were the extent of her swearing.  I, on the other hand, use those words as terms of endearment.  Anywhatthefuckledoodle, one of my mother’s favorite saying when she was at the end of her rope was “aw MR. PETE!”  My brother and I with our wit finely turned would ask who Mr. Pete was….then we would say maybe he can’t hear you….to make it even funnier we had a neighbour named Pete.  We thought it was hysterical.  Now I’m old…I think it’s time to adopt some old people sayings.  I can’t keep saying things like “it’s like an angel peeing on your tongue” and “anywhatthefuckledoodle” so I’m open to some good old fashion old people sayings.  Grandmotherly things…something more befitting of my station in life.

    My grandma, who was born in 1901, would say ‘Aww damnit all to hell’. So I figure I can keep on swearing.
