It was terribly foggy the other day. There is a saying out here that when it is foggy in the fall or winter, we will have snow in three days, three weeks, or three months. Well that is a pretty safe bet and leaves a lot of room for fudging. “Yep, remember that fog we had in early December? See, its snowing” (in mid February)!
I love hearing sayings like this. It seems to me that they are ways to make sense of the universe, even if they aren’t really true.
What are some of your favorite sayings, colloquialisms, and euphemisms? Can you make up some new ones?
