Wait Just a Cotton Pickin' Minute - 12/18/2012

RANDOM THOUGHTS:  Yesterday, I thought of the phrase I had heard and used before throughout my life, "Wait just a cotton pickin' minute."

Then I thought..."Cotton pickin' minute??? What exactly is that and how does is differ from a regular minute? Is it longer or shorter than a regular minute or is it the same time frame with a fluffy, warm, shrinkable attitude??? Or is some completely different kind of animal?"

My friend Scott suggested that maybe it was somewhere between a "woolen minute" and a "polyester minute."  Thinking in that direction, I am thinking that you would want to use a "Lycra minute" if you were wanting to stretch the time out a bit.

Thoughts?  Comments?
