Today's saying has to do with a person's size.
aunt saying to my grandmother, "Is Deborah feeling ok? She looks like she's lost weight."I've always wondered how this saying got started. Were they originally talking about a baby and how small it was when it was born? Or maybe how big around someone's waist is?
my grandmother to aunt, "I haven't heard her complaining about not feeling well. She can't afford to lose any weight, she's no bigger than a pound of soap anyway!"
I don't know but I do remember always thinking that it was meant as a compliment.
Hope you enjoyed, glad you stopped by and please come back again ;)
