Here it is Evelyn!!! Don’t throw anything else!!!
I wrote a book called Rags. Just finished the manuscript for Sgar. Notice the same letters in the word.
But growing up we used the word rag a lot. What do you call the thing you wash dishes with? Mama always called it a ‘dish rag’ that is what I call it. Sherry did too but she is trying to upgrade me to call it a dish cloth. I took a bath with a wash rag. What do you all call them?
Since the early settlers it has been called wash rags and dish rags, because that is what they used. Wonder why what we dried with was always called a towel. I believe for awhile we called it a dry rag, I think. But it quickly went to a drying towel.
Mama never handed me anything to dry with after my bath and called it a dry rag. It was always a towel.
I remember the dirty thing I remember, when a girl was snippy or snide, some boy would say she is on the_____. Well I had to grow up before I found out what they meant. Now I know.
Paper towels were invented in 1907. But my mama never used one in the kitchen until the late 50’s. When folks get old they save the used paper towels and reuse them. I ain’t saying I do, just saying.
WE do improve on our language as we go along. And I will admit the joke I heard when I was a kid ain’t funny now, the one where the daddy says,”Git that dish rag and clean that kids nose, can’t you see it is running!” For some reason that was funny when I was ten.
Thanks for coming by the log (The best I could do on short notice Evelyn!)
I know I'm not going to understand women. I'll never understand how you can take boiling hot wax, pour it onto your upper thigh, rip the hair out by the root,
There are two theories of winning an argument with a woman.
