There are several phrases that I have grown to love and have noticed that they have slipped out of regular use. So I will be…(ahem) Bringin’ em back!
1. “Knuckle Sandwich” – As in, “You wanna knuckle sandwich?” Origin unknown.
2. “Golly Neds” – This would be an “OMG” replacement, said with specific emphasis on each syllable. Origin (for me) my Grandmother, no doubt a carry over from the Depression.
3. “Lady Jane” – What you call a female when she is in big trouble, as in, “You better call me right back, Lady Jane!” Origin (for me) also my Grandmother, let’s just say I heard this phrase a few times.
