Soap Box...

Have you ever wondered where the phrase "soap box" came frome? I have and today I did the research...I like research. I know, I'm strange.

Apparently it comes from a time in history (traditionally British) where orators or public speakers would give impromptu speeches standing on soap boxes. They were wooden crates filled with bars of soap.

So, let me get on mine (well, since I have several, let me get on one of mine).

Okay, so I walked away for a few hours to do some work-related tasks and now I can't remember what I was all fired up about. Guess it couldn't have been that important, hmmm??
