Yet another phrase of our own

My Unca Rob is flying in for a visit today. I pick him up at dentist appointment time.

If you live at my house, you know this means he lands at tooth hurty.

I tell time in tired old riddles.

If you ask me to do anything at 6 a.m., I will write it down as pig’s tail time. . . ,

. . . because it’s twirly.

    I confuse enough people by referring to times as “Quarter past” or “Twenty to”

    Wow! That’s exactly what I grew up saying!! And still do, of course!
