Keyes leads us on a retro-romp down Lingo Lane, where the artifacts of language are littered like roadkill. He organizes them in categories for us (Stump Speech, Law & Order, Movie Metaphors, Home & Hearth, etc.). Origins and history included. From “keep your powder dry” and “drop a dime” to “deep-six” and “six degrees of separation,” there’s enough retrospeak to satisfy Sadie Hawkins. Sadie Hawkins? Look her up.
