Those who suspect their parents took secret courses on "How to Confuse and Conquer with Enigmatic Utterances" won't be surprised to learn there are indeed clandestine languages for parents. Here are the books that decipher them. Finally, Mom's warnings, "Don't you ever let me catch you doing that again!" (implying that you can do it, I just don't want to find out about it) and probes, "Is that what you're going to wear?" are made clear. Momisms (and companion, Dadisms) compile these silly turns of phrases handed down from time immemorial. Interpreted for the new century, each one is translated with tongue-in-cheek humor and insight.
