I am a fan of word origins, uses, and evolution. In Spring 2019 I discovered a handy book for this disease: Brewer’s Dictionary of Phrase and Fable. Since then I have literally been reading a dictionary that includes entries such as Alligator, Beelzebub, Cameo, and Daisy. What’s more, I have been keeping track of my favorite entries and cataloging them.
