The phrase Girl Friday came from Man Friday after the native in Daniel Defoe's novel Robinson Crusoe (1719)
The phrase originated in the Irish/American community of the USA, in the early part of the 20th century. The first printed citation of it that I have found is from the Connect…icut newspaperThe Hartford Courant, December 1911 - in a piece headed 'Bullet Ends Life of Famous Wild Cow':The famous wild cow of Cromwell is no more. After "living the life of Riley" for over a year, successfully evading the pitchforks and the bullets of the farmers, whose fields she ravaged in all four seasons. The quote marks that the writer added around the phrase are often an indication that the phrase in question isn't familiar to the readership, which is an indication of it being newly coined. The phrase was much used in the military, especially amongst the Irish soldiery in WWI. The first known citation in that context is in a letter from a Private Walter J. Kennedy (who surely had parents or grandparents who hailed from the old country), stationed at Camp Dix, New Jersey, which was published in The Syracuse Herald on 29th June 1918. The piece was headed "Great Life, Writes Soldier at Camp":"This is surely one great life." writes Kennedy. "We call it the life of Riley. We are having fine eats, are in a great detachment and the experience one gets is fine." Later that year, on 22nd October, The Bridgeport Telegram published a letter from Private Samuel S. Polley, 102 Regiment, stationed in France."They [German officers] must have led the life of Reilly as we caught them all asleep in beds..." Who Riley (or Reilly, or Reiley) was isn't clear. If he had been a known individual then it surely would have been recorded. The lack of any such records points to the name being chosen as that of a generic Irishman, much as Paddy is used now.
Origin unknown; however the essence of this phrase is used to describe the phenomenon where certain 'professionals' in any given area are so busy with work for their clients a…nd their teams that they neglect using their professional skills to help themselves or those closest to them. For example - the painter & decorator who never decorates his own house, the web designer that hasn't finished their website, or the accountant who is late in submitting his own tax return!
This quote is usually attributed to prolific Country songwriter Harlan Howard.
Is it right for a Catholic woman that is separated from her husband to go to a married man's house with her two children while the man's wife and children are out of town?
Absolutely not. It is a step down from cheating and can only lead to there, Catholic or not. The man is married and you are, essentially, the other woman. You need to ask you…rself what it looks like to your kids and to the mans wife. Put yourself in their positions. Would the mans wife be okay with the fact that her husband had another woman in her house while she were out of town? You need to think about that. You need to stop this before it goes any further and ends up destroying the livelihoods of those involved, especially the mans children. And what kind of example is this setting for the future of your own children? This may not be what you want to hear, but it is still the truth. Another If the married man is her own brother, it would be all right. If he is the family dentist and works out of an office in his home, and the lady is bringing her children there to get some cavities filled, it would be all right. Other than that, the visit may still be innocent but it doesn't sound very smart. Dodgy behavior like this may be innocent but all it would take would be one malicious rumor to start some real trouble. If the married lady doesn't care for her own reputation, she should care for the sake of her kids. Her children deserve better than to have a mother who is willing grist for the rumor mill.
Your children should come first because they depend on you for their lives and their upbringing, and your lady may only depend on you to take her to nice restaurants and… even then she could get someone else to take her.
In the novel Robinson Crusoe, Crusoe had a man he called Friday as his helper. Friday did just about anything Crusoe asked him to do. Girl Friday is a reference to a fem…ale worker who can and will do just about any sort of work her boss demands, just as the man Friday did for Crusoe.
Because men are the supporters of the family, as it was always believed until the 20th century, men had to take care of the families. It was their job to protect them and fina…nce them. In the time when the Titanic sunk, people had this kind of mentality. They were alturists.
A man and a woman were walking hand in hand.the man's mother-in-law is the mother of the woman's mother-in-law.how is the man related to the woman?
She's his niece, I reckon.
Years ago, pregnancy tests were performed by injecting rabbits with the woman's urine. In order to see if the woman were pregnant the rabbit had to be killed, and its ovaries …examined. Although the rabbit ALWAYS died, it became common for a woman to tell someone she was pregnant by saying "the rabbit died" So, thank you mother for the rabbit means to thank your mother that you are alive.
ones lot was originally just ones portion or share or stake in something the abstract idea comes from the earlier word hlot meaning some object such as a straw or die or chip… of wood that represents someones portion in some transaction or in some gambling game often with that persons name written on it & often as used in drawing lots or casting lots so your lot in life was & remains your portion of it as well as your lottery ticket to it in a sense the meanings of lot as a plot of land & as a great many came much later & have nothing directly to do with your lot in life "Lot" can also refer to Lot from the Bible, the grandson of Abraham. Whom, was not super fortunate as were the other members of Abrahams family, such as Isaac and Ishmael (the founding members of the Jewish/Christian and Muslim Religions, respectively). So, "That's you lot in life" seems it could mean we take on the same unfortunate position that Lot of the bible did. Read Genesis for more info.

What do you mean by "Stronger"? If you mean stronger than men, depends on the people.
It is a combination of the 16th century Middle English words steop and modor. Steop was a word that referred to orphans. Moder meant to take care of. A steopmodor was a woman …that took care of orphans. It eventually evolved into the modern stepmother.
