Appalachian Phrase of the Day
"I will say no more to my time."
Think of this as a statement of surprise, or maybe disgust, depending on the situation. My grandmother Bird, so called because Bird was her middle name....really..., used this phrase when I was growing up. I thought I remembered it correctly and I checked with my mom about fifteen minutes ago, so I know I am right.
In the above situation we might use the phrase as a statement of disgust, as the tree was starting to sway and I knew what was about to happen. However....how can anyone be annoyed/mad at that face? She is eight months old and into all of the Christmas decor.
We have three trees up in this old farmhouse. Two have been put down.....one to go :)
