Title: The Things We Say?
Post by: Norseman on December 04, 2015, 04:36:23 PM
Hi Guys

I was wondering is there a phrase you have always used but you have no idea where you got it from?

I was asked about my knees earlier and replied that the left one is 'ringing me the bells of Shannon' today. Its a phrase that I have always used for headaches, toothaches etc. However I have no inkling where I got it from or whats behind the phrase.
