Re: Re - RARA-AVIS: Hard-Boiled

Date: 10 Feb 2000

Found the thread on the orgin of the term "hard-boiled" interesting but then after WW1 boot came was suggested as to it's orgin the htread when to the orgin of the term "Dick" for a PI. Am researching "Hard-boiled" here and am willing to take any help if the list would like to once again pick up the thread. Also was told anything thing "hard-boiled" was yellow in the middle, the opposite of of this lists meaning of the term. Suppose "Hard-Boiled" simply refers to a "tough egg"? Malone
