What do the I's have?
I don't know.
The idiom just came to me. So, let me go look it up. . . .
Oh, it's not the I's, but rather the ayes. Now, that makes sense. The ayes have it. In other words, the majority of people who voted in favor of something won. Okey-dokey.
Pondering and writing about that idiom interrupted my original intention for this post. The thought started the other night. What came first: Ink or inkling?
Did someone have an inkling and needed ink for her pen to write about it? Or, perhaps, hmmm, she spilled ink on herself because someone surprised her by whispering in her ear. She stood up quickly, saying with much irritation to that person, "Inkling!" She was too polite to swear, you see.
This morning, while the Husband and I sat not impatiently in the doctor's office (simply a routine visit for the Husband), I wondered what came first: Imp or impossible? And, Id or idiot?
