The 4-Plex

Gathering Nuts for Winter #SOCS

#SOCS- Gathering Nuts for the Winter

What popped into my mind when I read that today’s prompt was “coin” was the term to “coin a phrase” Exactly what does that mean.  Oh. I know what we mean by saying “He coined the phrase” but why is it coined?  Why do we say coined, I don’t see how money and a phrase are […]
