An oxymoron is a figure of speech in which apparently contradictory terms appear in conjunction. Irish mothers were masters of the contradictory statements. Being told to explain yourself sometimes meant not to talk. Answering a request for a sweets with the standard, “I’ll give you sweets…” response were confusing to say the least.
Perhaps the best contradiction of all was, ‘Don’t come running to me when you break your legs’. There is too much to unpack from this statement. Thankfully I never witnessed nor heard of any child running to their mother with two broken legs. 😜😂
