Happy New Year’s Eve!
I realize that I kinda should be doing a more themed post, in honor of the holiday and all that. But I don’t really want to take the time right now to go through all my posts from this year and find my favorites. Sorry.
Also, there’s a thought that’s been in the back of my mind for a while. The thought of the meaning of “dirt cheap”. I mean, seriously.
Alright, so at first glance, it seems to make sense. After all, dirt is thought of as being findable basically anywhere. But what kind of dirt are we even talking about? And why is that commonly assumed?
Like, are we talking about dirt from Mars? If so, that stuff is EXPENSIVE. (Do we even have any yet?)
On a less grand scale, think about different locations. Like a beach setting. There’s sand everywhere, but not necessarily dirt. So, would the dirt really be cheap? Afterall, there are shipping fees involved with getting dirt to a sandy location. And then the amount of time it takes to incorporate dirt into the sand. And stuff.
So I guess that what I’m trying to say is that I don’t think it’s entirely fair to use the phrase “dirt cheap.” It’s inaccurate.
And besides, it might hurt the dirt’s feelings.
So, yeah. And again, happy New Year’s Eve!
I hope you have a lovely day and evening and holiday and stuff.
