New Name!

March 5, 2011

Why? Because it came to me walking back from the bus stop one morning after I sent my son off to school. And because I didn’t see anyone else with it when I Googled.

    Now you’ve got me thinking about what idioms could be considered merciless: shotgun wedding, trailer trash, a chicken with his head cut off. I almost included butt ugly, but that is pretty clear in any language.

    I realized the other morning, after having a conversation with two lovely people who weren’t native English speakers, that parsing my speech patterns can’t be easy for those not immersed in American English…maybe even in Midwestern American English. I try to make up for it with body language.

    On the other hand, recent delving into the topic has revealed many of the idioms I’ve inherited from my upbringing are ultimately Irish or Scot-Irish in origin, so there may be a few places in the world I could get away with it.
