Thread: Meaning Of Words

  1. #1
    Anyone ever used a word or thought a word meant something but didnt?
    I.e

    I'm walking on my todd/billy today.

    I thought it meant im walking with todd/billy, but i know better nowadays since i asked loudly in a science class "whose billy?".

    From the slang dictionnary, Jack Jones = alone, so "on my Jack Jones" should mean something like "on my own"


    Still searching the "Billy" stuff

    I used to think entomology was the study of the roots of words.

    How embarrassing is that.

    You can imagine how I felt when I discovered it was etymology.
