I read an article @ Signature with a few words (and one phrase) that people used to say. I’ve never heard of any of them before.

Salad Days:
means our young, wild years

when we’re pressed for time and rushing around to get everything done

sickeningly ingratiating, “a brownnoser”

refers to someone who sounds smart but isn’t

the pleasure you feel at other’s pain

an unstatesmanlike practitioner of politics and a petty or contemptible politician

sticking one’s head in the sand

to put someone in a good mood

  1. I knew schadenfreude and salad days but the rest are new to me. I LOVE dorbellist and am going to check out the pronunciation so I can use it.
