C is for Caboose

#DoodlewashJanuary2022 Prompt: Caboose.

Did you know that originally a caboose was a ship’s galley? The name was later used to describe the freight-train car used by crew for eating and resting. That car was usually the last one on the train, so then caboose became a word for something that follows behind. Which is how it then became a slang term for the butt. Don’t you love how the English language works?

    1. There was a Golden book called The Little Red Caboose. Sort of a ‘Little Engine That Could’ story as I remember.

  1. That’s why English is considered the hardest language to learn and master for non-residents. Imagine me. I am fluent in Spanish and English. Sometimes my wires get crossed and I wonder if I speak English well enough. haha haha I sometimes have to stop and think about what I am trying to say. 😂😂😂 Add in that French is very similar to Spanish and I know some French also. Head exploding! 😂😂😂
