I have found that my grandkids don't have the benefit of some of the old sayings that I grew up with. the other day I was talking about cleaning my sewing room. Mind you, just talking about it! My oldest , age 20 mentioned something about how I was going to do that by myself. She's not wanting to hurt grandma's feelings by telling me what a mess it is. I told her, "Just like you eat an elephant. One bite at a time." She looked at me like I was crazy! Have any of you ever heard that saying, or is it just me?
when I explained to her what it meant, she said that made sense. I think she still thought grandma was crazy, but she accpeted it.
Do any of you have "old sayings" that thid younger generation probably haven't heard of?
Please tell me I'm not the only one.
