i’m all moved back into my parents house in severn and i figured i’d get food at the chinese restaurant down the street and as i was waiting patiently for my order i overheard the cashier take an order over the phone. the guy on the other end must have had the wrong number because the cashier said, “no, no we are in severn, not college park” and that’s when i knew that for the first time someone, somewhere miles away felt the exact same as i did in that moment
Droit du seigneur was a putative legal right allowing the lord of a medieval estate to take the virginity of his serfs' maiden daughters. Critical medieval scholarship now regards this supposed right as a myth, as one recent specialist has put it, “the simple reason why we are dealing with a myth here rests in the surprising fact that practically all writers who make any such claims have never been able or willing to cite any trustworthy source, if they have any.”
In British English, the term the thinking man’s crumpet refers to a woman who is intelligent and good looking, particularly one who has a high profile in the broadcast media. It derives from the slanguse of the term “crumpet” to refer to a woman who is regarded as an object of sexual desire.
Knitters use the term “sweater curse" or "curse of the love sweater" to describe a situation in which a knitter gives a hand-knit sweater to a significant other, who quickly breaks up with the knitter. In an alternative formulation, the relationship will end before the sweater is even completed.The belief is widely discussed in knitting publications and some knitters claim to have experienced it; a recent poll indicated that 15% of active knitters say they have experienced the sweater curse firsthand, and 41% consider it a possibility that should be taken seriously.
