Adages that make ZERO sense

“Be still, O my heart!” Seriously? if your heart is still, you’ll die.

“Don’t amount to a hill of beans.” Honestly, I’m thinking a hill of beans would be a major mess to clean up. Where would even put it? Are they still fit for consumption?

“By the skin of your teeth…” ….?

“…in a pickle…” I’m pretty sure that’s physically impossible.

“…under the weather…” the weather, truthfully, has very little affect on ones’ health. Unless you live in a Victorian novel. #Pride&Prejudice #WutheringHeights #Sense&Sensibility

“…a little bird told me…” what are you, the bird whisperer? Do birds even listen? They don’t seem to. Gosh, birds never shut up!

“…what’s that have to do with the price of rice in China?” Sorry. Why would I know that? I have no Asian heritage. Do I wish I did? yes, but that’s a different story for a different day.

“Hotter’n blue blazes!” What are blue blazes? Please, explain.

“You scared the bejesus out of me!” umm….ok.

“the Bee’s knees!” Do bees even have knees? Abounding conundrums.

“Suck it up!” I don’t even want to know.

“Cry me a river, build a bridge and get over it!” That sounds a little excessive.

“…ball faced lyin’…” mayhap southern pronunciation distorts the actual words, but I can’t think what it might be possibly be.

“…put a bug in her ear…” gross. If you put a bug in my ear, I would hit you. That’s just the truth.

Just sayin’.
