Huh. I have a nun who was from the south, she teaches the Bible study I attend......she always says “nanny, nanny, boo boo”........is that a southern thing, too?
As I child in elementary school, we had one teacher who would place a child’s tooth (must have had a deal with the tooth fairy) into a clear class of cola and we watched in dismay as it slowly disappeared. Big lesson for little soda drinking wannabees. Back then soda was a once a week treat if that in our innocent world.
I’m sorry, I did see some more info on that after I hit send. I saw where the state stores have a set amount they have to send the State and last year they were in the hole due to various reasons including cheaper alcohol available in neighboring states. I understand your concerns about replacing the revenue.
The sales tax went up 1% also. I don’t mind paying it because I know that everyone has to pay it. Whereas my property taxes went largely to the public school systems, for which I receive no benefit.
It never ceases to amaze me the direction a word will take. Such a silly word, yet it invokes so much history. I learned a lot about that today. Thanks for sharing.
Never heard the nanny boo thing-but it sounds like a nun-ish substitute for profanity rather than a regional saying-kind of like oh, pooh, aww, shucks, etc.
