Question of the day, Saturday, Dec. 10, 2005

Filed under: General — Tom @ 5:37 pm

What is it that differentiates a regular minute from a “cotton-pickin'” minute? Of all the people that have used the latter in conversation, none of them have been picking cotton at the time (of which a pause in their work might truly be a cotton-picking minute,) nor were they known to have picked cotton at any time. I am unsure of exactly what I am supposed to infer when someone grumpily uses the phrase “now just you wait a cotton-pickin’ minute.”
