Have a bone to pick? Something annoying you? Did you ever wonder where the phrase came from? According to a source on the Internet, it dates back to the 16th century. It refers to the concept of a dog who is chewing at his bone, picking it clean (I have a bone to pick). It references the phrase, in similarity, to another phrase, "bone of contention". That phrase goes back to the 1500s and implies that two people are arguing over the same issue. Or, in the case of a dog, two dogs fighting over the same bone.
Well, with that in mind, that is what I would like to do here. I don't necessarily want to argue but discuss issues that, I am sure, bug other people as well. I hope you will come along and join me and see what bones we can uncover.
