P: “Ps and Qs” – Part One

Hello one and all!

Have you ever heard the term “mind your Ps and Qs”?  The phrase’s origin is uncertain, but one possibility is that the term dated back to the era of printing presses, during which letters had to be laid out by hand.  The lowercase P and Q could easily be mistaken, given that the workers would be seeing them backward.

What other interesting phrases have you heard of?

As always, much love!
