take it outside

When I was growing up, one of seven,  my Mothers favorite things to say was, “Take it outside” which meant that we were obviously getting  too rough or trying some sort of game that really in all honesty was better outdoors in the fresh air. ( A game of “touch football” or tag is a great way of letting off steam.)   I find myself repeating the words of my Mother and on “no-school days” – I order my kids to “take it outside.”  What do you find yourself saying that your Mom used to say, with or with-out kids.  You know you must have something to say, in an “inside voice” – please.
