Today’s random post has nothing to do with any book I am writing. Just giving you an advance warning.
Last night I actually heard the phrase “Bees Knees” used in a commercial – for McDonald’s. I couldn’t believe it.
I was convinced I hadn’t heard it correctly, but when the same commercial came on again a short while later, there it was as plain as day, “Bees Knees.”
I can’t tell you how much I loved hearing that. Call me old-fashioned. Call me weird (you wouldn’t be the first or the last, I assure you). But I love those old phrases that no one uses anymore.
The Cat’s Pajamas
The Cat’s Meow
Hittin’ all Sixes
I for one vote to bring some of those fun old phrases back.
For a great book that uses so many of those fabulous phrases, check out Keeper of the Bees by Gene Stratton-Porter. It’s an oldie but a goodie!
