We all love Gran. But didn't she talk a lot of sh1t? "It'll be alright in the end." No it fcuking won't gran, he's gonna die. The most striking thing is though that I find myself occassionally quoting from this bottomless pit of non-wisdom. "Hard work never did anybody any harm," is a particular favourite. We all know it it CAN and DOES, but why spoil a good saying with some inconvenient contrivance such as established fact? So my question is, which of these granny's favourites do we find ourselves using these days? Be it everything from at work- If you want something done properly you've got to do it yourself; or with the kids- If you have another one you won't have an appetite for your dinner; to general everyday use- It never rains but it pours. Also, have we added any of own to this pool of senseless (I was gonna say 'useless' there, but strangely it IS useful, somehow) knowledge. I personally have blatantly stolen a line from The History Boys to this effect. "History, it's just one fcuking thing after another." The last thing is this: Where there any real 'character building' gobbets that where chucked in at some point at grannys' house and have stcuk with us for all the right reasons? Mine would be that gem from my grandad: "Do unto others as others would do unto you, only do it faster and harder."
