Don't pick that scab, it'll get infected.

I don't care what "everyone" is doing. I care what YOU are doing!

If God had wanted you to have holes in your ears (eyebrows, tongue, etc.) He would have put them there!

The calling when home was always
"give us 3 rings duck".
A few more;
"A watched kettle never boils"

Me; "what's for tea Grandma?", reply; "bread, lard and a worm".

"Shut that door, you born in a barn?"

When I was younger and asked what's for tea the answer was "Stewed farts and onions"
And this is local to me.If you asked"Where are you going?
Up a tree in Rosemont"
If you didn't shut the door it was Were you born in a field?
