This morning Monty and I decided to pull the sheets and covers off Mom’s bed. We had a fit of hooliganism. (Hooliganism is a word because spell check did not flag it!) Mom was not happy.
She screamed at us “Bachi ga ataru!” This is a phrase Mom and Uncle Sam heard a lot from their Mom growing up. What does it mean?
- What goes around comes around, or
- Something similar will happen to you (if your actions are mischievous).
All I can say is Mom must have heard this phrase a lot when she was a kid because it slid off her tongue without a thought.
