Doors vs. Windows

There are phrases you hear as a kid that don't make sense when you're young. And because they don't make sense, you don't always get the phrase right.

For instance, when I was a kid, I remember hearing this phrase:

Just take it with a grain of salt.

But what I thought they said was:

Just take it with a great assault.


So the other night we were watching TV as a family when Amanda walked right in front of the television and just stood there ...

Henry: Hey Door ...

Amanda: Huh?

Me: You make a better door than a window.

Megan: Yeah Dora, move it.

And there you have it. Another generation of misunderstanding.


  1. Ha! My mom would always say she loved me when skies were gray and I could not figure out for the life of me when skies were ever grape.

  2. I googled "take it with a great assault" because that's how I've been saying it my whole life and I just learned that it was wrong. :( I am 19 years old. You are not alone.
