Yesterday my sister called me and asked me what I had been doing. I told her I had not been doing "diddly squat." I have not heard that saying and have not repeated it in a very long time.
I did managed to get a few things done after I talked with sis, but not much.
So today I decided to look up that phrase. There are different spellings and some spellings have a not so nice word with it.
These are two of the meanings I found for this phrase: A small worthless amount
and: An indefinite quantity that is below average size or magnitude.
Some days I do "diddly" and other days I am quite busy.
It was fun looking back at this old phrase.
