Word of the Week

In lieu of my no-show last week (we were driving back from Missoula to Spokane and I didn’t have time to get online…)  I’ll share two this week.
sore hand:
A large jam sandwich.  The joke is in comparing the combination of white bread and red jam with a bloodstained bandage.
went:
Used where others would say gone.
“He hasnae went back since.”
If someone says ‘the door went’ this doesn’t mean that it has independently parted company with its hinges and disappeared but that there was a knock or ring at the door.  The same applies to telephones, bells, sirens etc.:
“We’ll make it, the bell hasnae went yet.”
