Hidden History was an idea I had when I was daydreaming in my biology class.
The world around us is pretty interesting, and also pretty weird. On this blog, I am going to try to uncover some stories about how things got to be the way they are. I am going to ask questions like;
Why is Boston College called “the Eagles”?
When did chewing gum become a thing?
What is the story behind the word ‘hangover’?
This is an experiment in curiosity, and I hope that it will help you and me see the world around us with more clarity and wonder.
So welcome aboard! This is going to be fun. If you have something you are curious about, you can post it in the “I wonder…” tab. If you get that itch to know the answer, go ahead and do some research, and I will publish what you find on this website.
My friends in good stories… let’s do this.
