Hey Kids! Time for another history lesson in 1950's slang! Here is one of my personal favorites that I use quite often!
"Meanwhile, back at the ranch"
It comes from the old television western shows where someone telling the story would then say this line when they got off track from the storyline.
"Yeah I know I was supposed to go the the store earlier but on the way I saw Gimble's Basement was having a sale so I went there instead and found four dresses, a pair of shoes, you know the ones I told you I been looking for but could never find. Would you believe they actually had them in my size too, so I just had to have them but meanwhile, back at the ranch, by the time I got to the store it was already after three o'clock."
'Til next time kids!
