Random Happy Tuesday

 Hello!  I didn't forget this week!  But, about the time you read this, I will be under the knife getting a partial shoulder replacement (hemiarthroplasty). Oh what fun (sarcasm)!  But it needs to be done! This may be more info than you want, so keep scrolling if medical procedures give you the heebie jeebies.

It will look something like this.

I wonder where the phrase "under the knife" came from.  Let's find out!  Here's no suprise:  It originated from the field of surgery (duh).  It refers to the instrument used to make incisions such as a scalpel.  It's been used as a metaphorical expression since the early 20th century.

Well, that was not nearly as exciting as I hoped it would be!  I so love looking up the origins of idioms.  Maybe I can find something to make you laugh, although that's not what I'll be doing!

Praying this doesn't happen to me!

And something sweet before you go...

Visit my friends at Stacy Uncorked (Random Tuesday Thoughts) and Comedy Plus (Happy Tuesday) and have a great week!

  1. Good luck. Mom is recovering from her broken collarbone, one of the few that broke it so bad it needed surgery. It hasn't been very painful, but doing everything with the left arm and hand is not fun since she is right handed. Everything takes so long and it is frustrating.


I love comments! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
