Just a Skosh More

D

amn, teaching just takes too much time. How the heck do they think I can research and write with a five course teaching load. Ugh. Well. just a bit more. The paper ain’t what I would have wanted it to be, but it’s getting there.

BTW: Does anyone use the word, “skosh”? I first heard it used in a Levi’s commercial about 10 or 15 years ago. Levi’s used it to mean “a little bit”. Does anyone know the etymology of this word? I always imgained that it was derived from the Japanese 少しsukoshi, which means “a little bit.”

  1. I used it tonight and was looking for the spelling. My Central Valley California family has used the phrase for generations. I am 71. Don’t know where they got it.
