My Latest Post Ever

Andrea was wondering this evening about the origins of the terms "to boot" and "cold feet." It turns out "to boot" has absolutely nothing to do with your feet. In fact, it's actually an Old English term derived from the word "bat" which meant "good or useful." The Old English bat is also a root of the modern word "better."
In addition, according to the source below, there is no legitimate explanation for the term "cold feet."
