Obsolete idioms? Like:
“Strike the iron while it’s hot”
“Three sheets to the wind”
“Putting the cart before the horse”
Don’t try to kill the language.
Just like I said yesterday, Lemont needs a dope slap!
Maybe you should ring someone who cares?
Can there ever really be an obsolete idiom?
In this case “see you” for “I will see you later” does not require — but may involve — actually seeing her. Idioms are not even intended to be taken literally, so what she just said may not be any kind of an idiom.
More important, though, is that it is rude to “correct” the speech patterns of others unless they let you know they wish it. Imagine if I went around telling all of you that you are not speaking proper Southern English. Y’all would wear pore li’l old me out. And — strange though it might be — youse guys might not even want to speak more gooder English.
Sherry, I’d like you to meet Mohammed bin Salman. I believe you have a common interest in bone saws.
I hear ya! (although there is no audio)
These are the ones which shows Lemont can be rather a pillock.
But he can explain …
One of my favorite lines from the movies came from the 1987 film Dragnet, starring Dan Aykroyd as Sgt. Joe Friday. Joe is high up on Mulholland Drive trying to romance The Virgin Connie Swail (Alexandra Paul), when her gaze rises to the heavens and she gushes “Oh, look, Joe! Stars! Dozens and dozens of them!”
Call Sherry back while he’s still close. She’s got the shovel…
Just do that…make him see stars!
Lamont doesn’t ask about the bone saw??? I’d be more curious about that than any nuances of language.
Bone saw and shovel? Are those two ladies from Saudi Arabia?
My wife always hates when I make fun of her saying “See what this tastes/smells/sounds like”
Grammar Police on patrol. Language evolves naturally as a group effort. The only time one person can affect it is by coining an interesting word or phrase that catches on.
Not again Lemont……….. How can you be so smart and yet so foolish.
