Day 29! Holy Cow!

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!
I think I better get back to the Word!
