If you grew up with your grandparents or older family members around, chances are you heard a lot of words and terms that are pretty much extinct nowadays.
These old-timey phrases are a lot of fun and they might jog some memories for some of you.
Here are 10 old-fashioned terms that you just don’t hear very much anymore.
1. Picture show
What people used to call movies.
2. Kick up your heels
Let loose and have a good time!
3. Know your onions
This is a new one for me – it means to know a lot about a subject.
Trickery. Manipulation. Deceitful behavior. First used in the 1890s.
5. The Bee’s Knees
Excellent! Awesome! Stupendous! Amazing! “You really are the bee’s knees!”
To eat or drink noisily and greedily! “He sure is guttling it down!”
7. Giggle Water
I really like this one. It means alcoholic beverages. Pretty self-explanatory, I think.
A-OK. Everything is good. All good!
9. Canceled Stamp
A shy woman or a woman who kept to herself.
Someone who is lazy or a slacker. “You good-for-nothing dewdropper!”
What do you think? Should we bring them back??
