Posted by Joelenne on September 26, 2003

ok, so I hear my dad say it alot. "that woman is driving like a bat out of hell." maybe it is a phrase that is not familiar to my generation, I have found that it definatly means driving fast and reckless, but where did it ever originate? If anyone has any ideas or knows, I would love to find out for myself and my english class. Thank you!
