Raindrop Reflections

July 26, 2019

I’m really trying not to use too many photos that I’ve taken this month (July)…so far, I think I’m doing pretty good! Why? You might ask! Well, this way I’m not reusing the same photos as I’ve already used for another post.

If you remember, and have been following along, I did a series “1420” photos not too far back…I’m going to do the same thing this month. So far, I’m around 1200 photos taken for the month of July! I’ve only got a few days left, I know… but anything could happen in the next few days!

I’m going to do the same thing I did with my last “reflections” post… Sayings, and where they come from.

Enjoy!!

Giving Someone The Cold Shoulder

“Everyone’s heard of giving someone the cold shoulder, basically just ignoring them or making them feel unwelcome.

This saying originated in the early 1800’s and stemmed from serving a meal to your guests. If a guest was welcome you’d serve them a nice, delicious hot meal.

However, if the guest was unwelcome you’d simply serve them a cold cut of shoulder meat – be it pork, beef or mutton.

The shoulder was known to be the toughest part of an animal and thus the most inferior piece to serve as a meal.

By giving your unwelcome guest a cold cut of uncooked meat they’d get the idea they weren’t exactly welcome.”

There you have it! Something new today! I know I didn’t know where the phrase “Giving someone the cold shoulder” came from, although I have used the phrase before.

Hope everyone has a great day! It’s Friday!!
