Proverbs of Honest Tea

I love learning facts behind phrases.  My family spoke in these phrases and I wanted to understand what the heck they were talking about. 

Did you know…?

The whole nine yards refers to the amount of fabric on a bolt so taking the “whole nine yard” meant everything.

A stitch in time saves nine refers to taking time to do good work now – sewing -instead of shoddy work you have to keep fixing.

And my family favorite: You have to be a wee bit crazy to be normal, we’re just really normal just means we’re nuts! Open-mouthed smile
