Not Listening

As a child, then as an adult. My mom would often say "oawh." It sounded halfway between "oh" and "aw."

Typically, when she said this, one of us would be trying to tell her something, and she wasn't getting it. She would look right at you, but either didn't comprehend, or else just thought you were lying.

Also, it was usually a bit of information that would be important to her... like "no, that's not guacamole, it's wasabi!"  Link to that story. 

If we heard "oawh," then we knew to tell her again later. If she said it again, then you knew for sure something was going to happen.
