Brit' Word of the Day....

Today's BWOTD is a phrase that could cause some confusion:

"You'd better not get my goat up!"

'Get my goat up' = annoy me

I know I live way out in the country and have taken on the rural life, but no I haven't yet started breeding goats! But ya never know....

Firstly, I was born and raised in the US. I've been enjoying reading your blog for a few months now. I don't know if I've known many of your BWOTHDs because my father's parents were from Perthshire (I never knew them). Interestingly, I happen to use the phrase "get my goat up" all the time, and have always thought it was a US idiom.

EXCELLENT photo of you!!

My dream farm is up in Ottawa KS, not far from my dad's place. It's seven acres and I can raise Nubians and Mohair goats. Have a nice garden for all of us and room to roam.
