Day 146

I’ve been a little under the weather today. What an absolutely stupid phrase to mean you’ve not been feeling well. Under the weather. What numpty thought that one up, and why on earth did it catch on?

Well I can tell you as I’ve just asked google so you don’t have to, though you may already know the answer anyway.

In the old days, when a sailor was unwell, he was sent down below to help his recovery, under the deck and away from the weather.

Of course, there is never just one answer! From a different site comes … “Passengers aboard ships become seasick most frequently during times of rough seas and bad weather. Seasickness is caused by the constant rocking motion of the ship. Sick passengers go below deck, which provides shelter from the weather, but just as importantly the sway is not as great below deck, low on the ship.”

Either way, it’s a sailing thing. However, I am not sailing today, but still can be classed as under the weather I feel. No matter, it’s not a biggy and I’ll be right as rain (! ) šŸ¤£šŸ¤£ in no time!!

  1. Your picture made me think of a tropical forest. With an unexpected bug-like car under its canopy. Under the weather. Fascinating how the mind can tie things together.

    Here’s to getting better.

      1. I have had it even on deck though I like being outside too…its horrible…it makes you want to shoot yourself…its gotten worse with age too….so any time I am on a boat now I will have a spell of it…but always far far worse downstairs (or down below or whatever they call it)

  2. I hope it doesn’t last. šŸ™‚
    I wasn’t under the weather, but out in it with Ollie, in torrential rain. Everything I was wearing was soaked through, even though I had an umbrella!
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. Always the font of knowledge!! Working at a Nautical themed Brewery, I feel like this is great for me to know! šŸ¤£šŸ¤£
    Also, I think it’s funny that at this angle I can’t quite tell if the car is a mini cooper, a bug, or a fiat…. šŸ¤”
