Chicken Charlie HELP: English expressions (35) RE: HELP: English expressions 11 Sep 01

WYSIWIG already said it, but yes, idea is that the first time "he" saw "her," he fell so totally in love that the goose was cooked. Various critters bay at the moon, at least in folklore--evocative image of a lonesome dog or wolf (or coyote down here where I live) howling for its pack mates. That's being "moonstruck." I vote w/the folks who think of "down the middle" in connection with parting the hair down the middle, with the connotation of trying to be "proper." "Staid" would make sense. CC
