Swan

Have you ever felt trapped in a Sunday? Ever caught your pocket on a door handle? Ever regarded the buttons on someone’s coat as edible? Ever thought the sun a lozenge? Felt that roundabouts are the last colonised spaces in the world?

Bumble and Nitsy have, and their boundless awareness and imagination have made them the most renowned Detectors in the world.

    You may already know this – but “doodle” as in aimless drawing apparently was popularized in a magazine story and then in a major movie:

    “scrawl aimlessly,” 1935, from dialectal doodle, dudle “fritter away time, trifle,” or associated with dawdle. It was a noun meaning “simple fellow” from 1620s.

    LONGFELLOW: That’s a name we made up back home for people who make foolish designs on paper when they’re thinking. It’s called doodling. Almost everybody’s a doodler. Did you ever see a scratch pad in a telephone booth? People draw the most idiotic pictures when they’re thinking. Dr. Von Holler, here, could probably think up a long name for it, because he doodles all the time. [“Mr. Deeds Goes to Town,” screenplay by Robert Riskin, 1936; based on “Opera Hat,” serialized in “American Magazine” beginning May 1935, by Clarence Aldington Kelland]

    Interesting.
