Celia Yeary's blog post Monday at http://www.longandshortreviews.com/LASR/index.htm reminded me of a participation blog I'd been wanting to write, but kept forgetting.
Now that I remember, here goes:
When I grew up I heard so many phrases that were a normal part of speech. I thought nothing special of them at the time. Now that I don't hear them much any more, and I kind of miss them.
Some of them are:
Don't dilly dally
None of that monkeyshine business, you hear?
That's really icky
Were you born in a barn?
I know there are more, but right now I can't think of them. How about you? Which ones do you remember?
