Why Do We Say That? A Hodgepodge of Potpourri, Part II

ID : 81453   
« back to classes page
Every time we open our mouths, words with strange origins and meanings flow from our lips.  These words sound ordinary and downright commonplace – but behind them are stories that are exotic and downright bizarre. Why are candidates covered in powdered chalk?  What’s the connection between chivalry and horses?  Are horses more polite than other animals?  Should bridal shops sell beer rather than dresses? Yes, they should.  And does a short shrift mean you only work a six-hour day?  Join us for a hodgepodge (French stew) of potpourri (plague repellent).
