This is my blog about words, idioms and sayings, mainly from years gone by. Have you noticed how different generations have different ways of expressing themselves?
I am not writing new material for this blog at present, but here are two links to posts you may have missed. The one about work does not mention being fired (or given the sack). There is no direct reference to shooting in the other post. A cryptic crossword-solving computer between my ears has made a connection between the two posts. And someone being sent away either temporarily or permanently may be said to have been given their marching orders!
Comments are closed on my older posts, but you may comment here for a limited time.
