#SoCS – Gimme some skin!


Skin is an organ, right? Sure it is. (Looked it up because I was only 99% sure.) You know what else I looked up? The phrase “give me some skin.” That was exactly what I thought it was too. But I was surprised at how many “give me some …”s there are in the Urban Dictionary. Many surprised me. Some even include other organs! Look if you dare.

Give me some skin is such a friendly one, though. As long as you don’t mind sharing your organs. Of course, some people go much further and share their kidneys. Not both, of course. That would be fatal. Potentially. Still, you don’t see people going around saying “gimme some kidney …” *Checks Urban Dictionary OOh, if you click on the last one on the list, you get more. But no, there’s cabbage, but no kidney.

Then there’s the exchange of organs–an eye for an eye. That doesn’t make much sense, does it? Unless you jip someone out of an eye that has 20/20 vision when yours is less. Haha! Gotcha! But then you have the potential difficulty of having two eyes that don’t match in colour. How awkward! (I have one blue and one green … it’s really not that awkward. But you know, stream of consciousness and no editing …) I’m using a lot of ellipsis in this post. I don’t usually.

Anyhoo, lots to do. There are a couple of actual blog posts I’ve been meaning to write. *gasp! So much to do.

  1. I read the ‘gimmie some skin’ with a rappers voice in my head while an eye for an eye was Richard Burton. It is funny the way still words on a page come alive in my head. I loved this stream of conciousness it is fun!


  2. Hah! I liked your roaming πŸ™‚


  3. “Gimme some skin,” brings back memories. “Gimme some cabbage,” made me giggle. You never know what you might discover in adventurous stream of consciousness.


  4. I have two different colored eyes too! Its quirky! xx


  5. I haven’t used that expression in a long time (and now, I doubt I’ll ever use it again) but I never thought about it. I like your silly posts.


  6. The skin is the largest organ in the human body.
    Adults carry some 8 pounds (3.6 kilograms) and 22 square feet (2 square meters) of it

  7. Gimme some brain!😱


  8. If an organ is an organ, and an organ is an organ, why are we having this conversation about organs? Just saying… β™₯


  9. Silly is the best way to declutter that mushy mind thing. I suppose in your frame of organ swap the saying I owe you my heart might have a more sinister edge. What if the debt is called in? Hmm…drifting back toward the creepy dusturbing book and film……
