shep

Jean Shepherd Quote of the Day

On life: "It's all gallimaufry and a yard wide."

I think I may have a new motto.




Much like WC Fields, Shep was fond of the word gallimaufry and occasionally waged a one-man campaign to bring the word back into common usage. I won't go so far as to spearhead a new campaign 30 years later, but by gum I'll use it every chance I get.
