Funny expression, Holy Cow. Do you ever find yourself in a normal conversation using usual idioms and suddenly stop, and think about what the words actually mean? Sometimes that happens to me and I end up on a treasure hunt through the dictionary. So many words I use totally incorrectly! I crack myself up!! Sad, isn't it, how easily I am entertained? Tee Hee!
Holy Cow! An expression of surprise. I am sure it has an origin as a euphemism for Holy Christ. But think about sacred cows. We say that about things we believe to be absolute truth even if they are not. So am I speaking that into the atmosphere when I say it? This blog is making absolutely no sense! Holy Cow!
