I think I've mentioned this obsession for Knowing Things before, but this week was particularly bad. My mind just WON'T let up until I've found the answer. All this meditation and yoga...oh yeah, I'm a master (not).
First, on the radio, we heard the expression 'For Pete's Sake.' It didn't honestly register but then dear husband Pete said 'I wonder what's the derivation of that expression?'
From that second...SO WAS I.
Finally, this morning we were listing to Farming Today (yes, we lead such an exciting life) and there was talk of Double Gloucester cheese and Pete said (I'm sure he does it on purpose) 'Why did they use the word Double?'
Now to me, the answer was obvious, I thought: that Double Gloucester was twice as something or other as Single Gloucester...
I wasn't absolutely SURE...
For answers to any of the above questions, just ask. I might have time to tell you when I've finished researching online to see if this obsession of mine is A Recognised Psychological Disorder.
That's if the men in white coats haven't dropped by already.
