Seemingly innocent is it not?
I love history. Every day is a learning experience while researching the origins of some of our more commonly used words. What are goosebumps? I always believed them as that freakish chill sending my forearm hair on edge with an added shake or two or that odd book series my little sister read.
So alas, as you’ve learned my first favorite thing is to look up the definition, indulge me, kindly…
“Definition of goosebumps: a roughness of the skin produced by the erection of its papillae especially from cold, fear, or a sudden feeling of excitement.”
-an evocative description, but oddly fitting, by that Merriam Webster fellow or gal-
But occasionally and often innocently while foraging a little deeper, you might stumble into something that makes you say, “Are you f’ing kidding me?” And swear while throwing your last grain of salt over a left shoulder to never mutter such terminology again.
And why salt over the left? because the devil’s face lingers there.
