Thank you, Linda Harris , for mentioning hissy fit in a Facebook comment. Maybe late 19 th century? It ain't necessarily so. This is what the Phrase Thesaurus has to say about it. A temperamental outburst; a tantrum. The allusion in this expression may be to the hissing and spluttering of such an outburst, or it may simply be a contraction of 'hysterical'. The term originated in the USA in the mid 20th century and is first recorded in a edition of American Speech: I have heard it for eight or ten years.

He threw a hissy or He had a hissy means that a person in question was very disturbed and very angry. According to Ngram , it starts appearing with some regularity around The earliest usage I could find searching Google Books is… in all places! In , it appears again in The Numbers of Our Days: A Novel by Francis Irby Gwaltney. So, once again, I've been snookered by a phrase that sounds at least a century old, but isn't.

Don't call this a hissy fit Cartoon caricature of Christina Rossetti by her brother Dante Gabriel Rossetti , showing her having a tantrum after reading The Times review of her poetry.

Posted by Ann Parker at Wednesday, September 12, Wednesday's Random Slang-o-rama: Now, where did that come from? It sounds very 19th century Time to look around and find out! Also, all of a dither ; in a flutter or tizzy. In a state of tremulous agitation. The noun dither dates from the early s and goes back to the Middle English verb didderen , "to tremble"; in a flutter dates from the mids; in a tizzy dates from about and is of uncertain origin.

So, if I want any of my Silver Rush characters to be "in a state of tremulous agitation," I guess they had better be in a dither or in a flutter Wednesday, August 29, Wednesday's Random Slang-o-rama with an update!

And the whole town? Time to dig into this expression and see if we can identify what's going on behind the words Here's what it says for this bit of slang: Go on a spree The precise allusion of this term is disputed. Some believe it refers to setting something on fire; others point to a vague association of the color red with violence.

Have I used that phrase in my books? And if I did, was I being anachronistic? Well, let's dig a little more The Online Etymological Dictionary has a brief notation under the "paint" entry as follows: To paint the town red "go on a spree" first recorded Uh oh.

It's summer , and potential invest-ment in Leadville's rich silver mines has drawn former president Ulysses S. Grant to this city at the top of the Rockies.

Political aspirations drive young John Quincy Adams Wesley, and itinerant mapmaker Cecil Farnesworth struggles against the seductive call of Leadville's red-light district.

As part owner of the Silver Queen Saloon, Inez Stannert has often observed the ruination that comes from yielding to temptation.

      The bad guy in this book was so obvious it was almost insulting. I like to ride along with a mystery and see it as a challenge to figure out "who dunnit" before the villain is unmasked. The murdering arsonist was so obvious from the first time Inez meets him I thought it was a major red herring. It was just a telegraphed punch. I like historical fiction. I like to know it is based on fact and well researched. The books of this series are well researched and involving.
