People In Glass Feathers Don’t Fall Far From The Goats

I am going to take you all on a short journey through time. You ready? Seatbelts on?

About a year ago, Manic Mariah and I were sitting at our favorite coffee shop enjoying a fun game of Scrabble (There will be a post on Scrabble) while eavesdropping on everyone around us. Now, I have to say that what the eavesdropping sparked was a long and drawn out competitive yet collaborative venture that we enjoyed for months to come.

At the coffee shop that day, we heard some of the most ridiculous pick up lines, witnessed horrifying first dates and a plethora of odd people having conversations with their, clothed, dogs. But the funny thing was that what caught both of our attention was when a woman, sitting with her friend made a comment regarding it “raining cats and dogs” and if that was not enough, she followed that, a few minutes later by saying something about a goose and a gander.

Manic Mariah and I, at the same moment decided that it was extremely important to put together a list of all of the sayings that really “got our goats.”

As we began this list, we attempted to not only figure out what some of them meant, but why they became sayings and what their origin was.

Our list was somewhere between 50 and 100 …..and now I can’t find the list. All that time, effort and “important” research …down the drain.

So here is what I am asking of you.

Please post a comment with a saying that really “gets under your skin”, why it bugs you and what you think the origin is.

Oh my gosh! There are so many! I don't even know where to begin. I've never looked into where they come from, but I can't stand "sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite". Holy heebie jeebies.

The only things I can think of right now are slang sayings and I am pretty sure they came from some high school kid trying to be ghetto!

"Because I am Mom and I said So" the origins is probably the first mother on earth! I am guilty of it saying it as well, but every time I do it makes my skin crawl...but sometimes it's all I can come up with...I should totally get more creative!

Okay, so my least favorite one has to be "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me." That one always ticked me off because sometimes words DO hurt more than sticks and stones. I remember hearing it a lot from other kids and I would always think to myself, who taught them to say that??
