But even when you're behind, you don't lose your facility with language. I like the "so far behind I can't see the taillights of where I should be" phrase.

Waily, waily reminds me irresistably of the Nac Mac Feegles.

The Nac Mac Feegles, but even older, a folk song I learned fairly early that has "O waily, waily..." in the refrain. I think my brain has merged the two influences.

My Texas grandmama used to say, "All behind like a cow's tail." Which I am, too, with the cow disappearing over the hill in front of me, yet. Ah, well.

Happy Christmas.

I love that, Delia! All those good country sayings--so vivid. A man who was superintendent of schools when we moved her would say, of some project that needed doing but no one really wanted to take on, "We're just going to have to back our ears and lean into the collar..." and I could immediately see the plow mules doing that.

I like that one, too.

I have an aunt, from South Carolina, famous for her, ah, energy, who used to say, when she was hungry: "My stomach's been talking to my backbone and telling it my throat's been cut." Which she managed to deliver so it didn't sound precious, which is always sounds when I say it. Of course, the heavy SC accent helps.
