i dont know why i thought of it the other day,,,,but i asked everyone that came in the bar if they remembered using it and NOONE had ever heard of it,

when i was a kid in san francisco we used to say "MODED" alot. like if someone messed up or fell. i remember singing "moded, corroded, your mommas booty exploded"
and another was "FACE" and you would stick your hand over your face....i guess it would compare to saying "BURN" thesedays.

anyone else remember these?! These were used about 25 yrs ago.

you've got a long row to hoe.
most peaple now say "road".
it's a farming thing from the days of horse drawn hoes.
if ther are many rocks or tree roots or such just 1 row could be very difficult.
itcan be used for any of lifes difficultys.
when i got married i was told i had a long row to hoe.
they were right.
i hope all of you're rows are effortless and fruitfull. :)

Hear that one occasionally here, or OH MY WORD

I had a lady tell me ' OH HUSH YO MOUTH!!" a couple years ago, when i told her my cat had 27 toes,lol!

my grandma says "well I'll swum"
what on earth is that? it doesn't even begin to make any sense.....


she also says al-kee-haul and Lizbeans, pronounced with a long eeeee sound (alcohol and lesbians) I swear, I had no idea what a lizbean was, when I was a kid, but I was sure it was some vegetable they were having for dinner.... till I finally overheard that the woman my uncle was always trying to pick up on was a lizbean, and he couldnt' stand that she wouldn't date him,lol.

my understanding is its like, someone who would eat anything , or always hungry, or always willing to eat , like...my huband calls the dog a pot licker, because it sits and begs, and begs for anything, and would eat anything you give it.
I always thought of it as like, my kids when I make a cake say " can I lick the bowl?" I say EWW, NO! raw eggs!" but, they really just want to run their finger through the batter, and lick their finger, so, I think that would be a pot licker, lol

I remember being horrified when I was probably 11 or 12, when I first heard my mother use a phrase that had LONG passed out of common place:

"Well, I screwed the pooch on that one!"

I stared at her and thought she had completely lost her mind. (While not prudish, she has always been rather conservative in her use of expletives and rude phrases.)

Thankfully, she hasn't used it in the intervening decades.

I'm a classic film buff and regularly catch myself using very old phrases with odd results. I actually recently broke up a near fist-fight with two coworkers and said "Hey, let's cut this Tom foolery out."

It instantly caught everyone off guard but myself, but once I saw everyone laughing I put two and two together and realized what I said, I had to laugh too.

It's "Fair to Middling" which makes a little more sense than Midland (sounds like)

Like, "how are you?"

"Oh, Fair to Middling" (or middlin')

One time when my kids were little, my boyfriend was chastising them for something, and said something like, "..and if you do it again, I'll take away the tv tonight. How do you like them apples!?" It was a very serious moment, until my kids looked at each other, and just BUSTED UP laughing! They had never heard that expression before, and they thought it was the funniest thing they'd ever heard. Of course, my boyfriend thought they were disrespecting him, and got even angrier (idiot). I had to explain to him why they were laughing, then he laughed too......lol...
Oh, and he's the only one I ever heard (other than my g'ma) who called the fridge the "icebox"...

My grandmother used to call you know "easy girls"- "trollipers." It was so funny! She would always accuse my grandfather of flirting with "all those trollipers at the Brown Jug (which was a local bar). This next one has nothing to do with old sayings but it's so funny. If she thought someone was high on drugs she would say, "I think that girl is on the pot!". So funny - I miss her!

It's "Fair to Middling" which makes a little more sense than Midland (sounds like)

Like, "how are you?"

"Oh, Fair to Middling" (or middlin')

Oh how funny... I still say this all the time !!! I just realized I say "middlin".

I also used to say "Fabulous" all the time... still do, too... long before it became a "gay" word.

My kids say "what the" all the time (from Spongebob) and I hear it other places too...

Some other phrases I used in the past and still use ...

"Don't Go There"

"Since God Was a Boy"

"Say That In English"

"Don't Gross Me Out"

and I put my hand up a lot (like when you say "talk to the hand") just when I say something... don't know where I got that from...

New England slangy stuff:

"Wicked cool" and "wicked awesome" ....sounded terrible then and sounds even worse nowadays.
"I'm psyched"
"Ton" as in weight--which is misused all the time, such as "It costs a ton" or "a ton of fun"--neither of which have to do with weight.
"Bubbler" (pronounced "bub-blah") which is regional talk for a water fountain
"Lookit" which translates to come here and see this/that

The worst offender and one that I still hang on to, despite having erradicated every New Englandism from my vocabulary and accent, is the grammatically incorrect "these ones" or "those ones". Ugghh! Can't seem to get rid of it!

Here is Florida I don't notice so many regionalisms, but I do notice my hubby, a native Key Wester, saying some wierd things....

"Long pants" which is kind of redundant, I think
"The air-con" instead of 'air-conditioning' or 'air-conditioner'
"Fan-tastic" while rubbing his hands together

Ice House---------when refering to the 7-11 ect. I believe this to be native of San Antonio because I have been other places in Texas and they wouldn't have a clue what I was talking about!

The name came from the Lone Star Ice and Food Stores that are unique to this neck of the woods. They really use to sell blocks of ice for the ice boxes! The name just stuck even after the stores modernized!

I think it's: fair to middlin'

meaning either fair - middle of the road - or good

I was curious where this came from, so I did a little research.
I'm from Texas, and I think that folks here have adapted it to Fair to Midland (which is a town here). Sort of a play on words, if you will. Now I'll bet that most folks don;t even remember that it's supposed to be Middlin'.

Century Dictionary of 1889: “Fair to middling, moderately good: a term designating a specific grade of quality in the market”. The term middling turns out to have been used as far back as the previous century for an intermediate grade of various kinds of goods, both in the US and in Britain—there are references to a middling grade of flour or meal, pins, cotton, and other commodities.


Fair and middling were terms in the cotton business for specific grades—the sequence ran from the best quality (fine), through good, fair, middling and ordinary to the least good (inferior), with a number of intermediates, one being middling fair. The phrase fair to middling sometimes appeared as a reference to this grade, or to a range of intermediate qualities—it was common to quote indicative prices, for example, for “fair to middling grade”. The reference was so well known in the cotton trade that it seems to have eventually escaped into the wider language.

cool, thank you! So I'm not crazy, some people Do say Midland!

We never used the full word, just BFE.

Ironically, today, one of my students wrote on his sheet and asked me if it was ok that he abbreviated the organism's name and he laughed. I glanced quickly and thought it was BFE and told him no! Then I looked closer and it was the word "BEE". Oops.

I wish it wasn't so, but I haven't heard the following in such a long time: "I apologize, it was my fault;" or "I'm sorry, I take responsibility for my actions."

My dad used to say when it was really hot that it is "hotter than an eight holed stove". I find myself saying that at times too. Must have been from the 18th or 19th century. :smile9:

"Doesn't that just frost you?" .... said to someone who is really frustrated with something.

My grandmother used to say that one.

OOH! I thought of one!

My great-grandma used to say:

It's darker than Coaly's A$$.

No clue where THAT one came from.

My grandma and aunts add "as all get out" to just about everthing. "Funny as all get out." "Cute as all get out." It bugs me, not sure why, lol.

"You wish"
"Well if you love (whatever) so much, why don't you just marry it?"

My Grandma, who was born in the 19th century, would exclaim "I Swan!" instead of "I Swear!" because ladies don't swear, and they didn't even speak the word "swear".
I tried to revive it years ago, but couldn't get it to catch on.

If we misbehaved as kids, my grandma would say we were "a bad egg" or we were "a pistol". Now I say that about my grandson--it helps me to remember her.

For all my life, my grandfather used to say "What do you do: Walk to school or carry your lunch?' I BEGGED him to tell me what does that mean! and he would always tell me I could figure it out. FINALLY the week he died he told me that it was just something he made up to drive us nuts. All us grandkids got a kick out of saying that at the funeral. I think I will say that one to my grandson too!
