What’s your story, morning glory?
This is today’s silliness, it being the last day of April and all. Wave good-bye to April. Busy month for me. Did different things for the heck of it.
Case in point, out of curiosity I did some genealogical research about ye olde family and in the process I, once again, stumbled over something entertaining.
In that wordy historical way I like. Bumping gums and a ring-a-ding-ding I say.
What I found is Dirty 30s!, a fun website with a long list of slang terms from, you guessed it, the 1930s.
Reading through this list gave me an idea of how my ancestors spoke to each other. You shred it, wheat. Or I assume that they did. I mean, they probably used slang, right? No reason to believe that they spoke in scholarly language all the time.
[Well, one did write a book that landed on the NYT best seller list in the 1930s but he must have at least known these words and phrases. Togged to the bricks, that one.]
Anyway, below I present for your entertainment a simple little poll about the word GOOD. My theme for the day, it would seem. I could do worse. Good is good.
Thus I ask of you to shake a leg and use your peepers because you’ve got a poll to take.
