cod sucker illumination
This old post of mine on a bulletin board on seemaxrun and in it I say something like, Wow, vindictive little cod sucker, ain’t he?
You know I think I first heard that expression as a kid, or read it in some way-too-old-for-me novel, and just sort of picked it up. But it was not until now, reading it right on the heels of watching a film set during Napoleon Bonaparte’s time it actually clicked in my head what that means.
No wonder I got in so much trouble as a kid.
I do not think that means sucking fish.
