A quick amendment to my previous post Enjoy the Journey, with some additional “Sewellisms” from my friend and colleague from our Osceola High School days, Greg Sewell. These were a couple that my wife and I laughed about just today!
- “Oh, the bitterness” – extreme disappointment… and the extended version “Oh, the bitterness I feel“
- “Knothead” – probably referring to someone that caused him to say “Oh, the bitterness“
- “He must have had the “operation”” … referring to a colleague that became a school administrator… “What operation is that?” some unwilling patsy would ask… “Oh, the operation to remove their backbone“… even funnier because Greg himself later had the “operation” and became a school administrator!
Feel free to send any other “Sewellisms” you might remember.
