Expressions and sayings...

Here is one that will be new to you…

“..wouldn’t know you from who shot John”…

Now what on earth is this in reference to?  Well, I went and looked it up – I had to – it’s something MY father and mother used to say and guess what?  It is VERY southern expression and according to the wikitonary – and shockingly – even attributed to a very specific town of Texarkana(close to where I grew up): http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Talk:who_shot_John

 

“Bread and Butter” when on a walk and having to split up (release hands to go around an object) during a walk…  This was used to ward off bad luck.

Funny world out there, isn’t it?
