More dad-isms (with the greatest affection)

<-- Dad & I spent the day in the Daintree. I can't tell you how tedious and awful it is to have to travel so often...

After a rough trip out to the Barrier Reef:
Me: 'Did you feel seasick?'
Dad: 'I was a bit skirmish, but not really sick'

Conversation over coffee with the Saturday morning papers:

Dad: 'The bubonic plague was started by Mormons, you know.'

Me: 'Mormons?'
Dad, 'Yes, from Asia.'

Complete puzzlement. I peer over his shoulder at the Australian Magazine to find that the plague was initially spread by marmots.
