In my part of the world students are gearing up for their final exams. Where I grew up we used to say if you hadn’t started studying when the jacarandas bloomed it was too late. Where I live now, there are no jacarandas (wrong climate), instead, they say when the fluff flies it’s too late if you haven’t started studying. The fluff is the seeds from fluff or kapok trees and poplar trees. It’s funny how little things like this become such a trigger. I’m well over the tummy-lenching stress of “have I done enough study” and now relish the sight as it means Christmas is near.
Do you have any funny sayings/triggers like this?
