Subject: minute rice second
Someone on another list used a time-phrase new to me:
Tell me where it can be found and I'll transfer my
membership in a minute rice second.
I have previously known and used the phrases "Texas time" ("and [took] my
Texas time doing it") and "New York minute," but this one is new to me.
My correspondent thinks he picked it spending childhood summers in N.C.
Do others know it?
