Random things in my head...

No, this is not a cute picture of my kids, I know. This lady celebrated her 100th birthday by smoking her 170,000th cigarette. Happy Birthday too you!!! I can think of 170,000 other things that I would rather do on my birthday! On an even crazier note... I have a question for you. The English language can be confusing for those who are just learning the language, especially when it comes to "sayings". So which way is correct? Head over heels, or head over hills? This is random, I know, but in the last few weeks I have heard several different people use the expression "Head over hills." Now, I am the confused one... I thought it was "head over heels"?! So which is correct? Anyone know?
P.S. NO, I do not have a hearing problem... I have even seen it written this way.

Hi Emily! I went to ACU and found your blog through Allison's. I've always thought the actual phrase was "Head Over Heels," meaning someone is tumbling head to toe. Maybe you've heard 'hills' because that's the way we sound in Texas?

I agree with the above post. It is head over heels. We're just hick down here!

I agree too....head over heels!

Indiana says Head over Heels!

It's head over heels. The head and heels are both part of the human body. Let's keep things in the same category. ;)

Head over heels is correct. You may have heard "head for the hills" which is definitely something you want to do when the zombies come out to play.

I am sure you are refering to my entry on Leslie's blog when I wrote for them. My mistake!! I guess I never thought about it...head over heels does make more sense!

I agree with "head over heels" but will say "head over hills" just to be different.
